Passionate about human-centered design, collaborating with creative folks, and growing as a human. Constantly confusing people with my ever-changing hairstyles. Let’s grab a latte and talk about creating inclusive workplaces (also down to exchange dog pics).

 
 

Experience

UX Designer | Payments

mindbody, inc. | march 2018 - present

I currently lead Payments UX across three scrum teams. I work hand-in-hand with product managers to solve problems and influence product direction. I meet with internal payments stakeholders (there’s a lot) and strive to improve internal communications and processes. I work to balance customer experience, business objectives, complex technical constraints, and scope.

Women in Tech Social Chair

mindbody, inc. | may 2018 - present

As a member and social chair of WIT, I collaborate with passionate women and allies who value inclusivity. My goal as social chair is to create spaces where women and underrepresented groups feel they belong. I have planned social events ranging from wine socials to yoga classes to family events. This role allows me to connect with team members across the company who I wouldn't interact with in my daily job.

Associate UX Designer

mindbody, inc. | June 2017 - march 2018

As an associate, I often worked in a paired-design model with seniors and leads. I was dedicated to the MINDBODY marketing site, which was the first time marketing utilized UX resources in our company. IA and navigation improvements we made saw significant positive results, which provided a great case study on the value of UX in the Org. Additionally, I worked on Dynamic Pricing— a feature we were integrating into our product after an acquisition. This project came with heavy business objectives and cross-team collaboration.

Digital Designer

Matchfire Agency | august 2016 - june 2017

Provided wireframes, workflows, and high-fidelity designs for a wide range of projects. Worked with clients such as Meathead Movers, UNDP,  Digital Democracy, eBay for Charity, and Muscular Dystrophy Association. I was drawn to Matchfire for their focus on non-profit and charity work. 

UX Design Intern

mindbody, inc. | may 2016 - August 2016

Made improvements on the MINDBODY App. Designed intuitive workflows for both iOS and Android–with strong consideration for Human Interface Guidelines and Material Design. Assisted the implementation of Autolayout for the MB Express App. Worked  with developers to understand constraints while seeking to create a seamless user experience across all device sizes. 

 
 

Education

Graphic Communication | Bachelors of Science

Cal Poly SLO | 2012 - 2016

Learned how to create design solutions from conception to the final product. This curriculum was collaborative and gave me experience with diverse forms of design and problem-solving. During this time, I participated in multiple Hackathons that sparked my passion for UX and mobile app design.

Women and Gender Studies Minor

Cal Poly SLO | 2012 - 2016

Fueled my fire for fostering diverse and inclusive workplaces. These humanities courses instilled in me the value of multiple perspectives and contributed to my passion for critical thinking and problem-solving. The core of this education was looking at complex problems related to gender, race, science, and technology and asking the question “How might we do things differently?”
