If I could describe myself in three words, they would be…

 
 

CURIOUS

I am always thinking about the why’s behind the what’s and I’m not afraid to ask questions! (Yes, I was definitely that kid in class who raised their hand too many times.)

 
 

 
 

EMPATHETIC

Even before I knew what UX design was, my mantra was: Be empathetic. I was incredibly moved by empathy’s deeply humanistic principle. With it, I can know more of the world than I ever could just by myself.

 
 

 
 

HELLA EXCITED!!!

(Sorry, I meant four words!)

Solving problems excites me. I truly feel that it’s an honor and privilege to positively impact peoples’ lives through design. What’s not to be excited about?!

The end is only the beginning. From here, I work to improve through research and feedback, then reiterate based on qualitative and quantitative data with a healthy sprinkle of intuition.
