About Me

I’m a passionate designer and creative leader with 4 years of fast-paced experience, including practicing and leading design, creative strategy, and internal creative leadership and project definition. I channel my passions for problem-centered design, user experience and research, and servant leadership to successfully execute on thoughtful product designs.

Currently, I’m a UX designer at Sidebench, an independent digital product consultancy that focuses on delivering strategic, user-centered design, particularly within industries that are unfamiliar with the agile world. We work closely with our clients to reinvent the future.

I'm also co-founder and director of product design for Kliit Health, an inclusion-motivated healthcare app for people with vaginas.

Prior to Sidebench, my experience includes:

  • Medical Media Arts Lab UX Designer, Texas Children's Hospital
  • Community Bridges Fellow, Rice University Institute for Urban Research
  • Lead Marketing and Communications Intern, Rice University Housing & Dining 
  • Duncan College Designer and Editor, Rice Campanile
