My Foundation:

Design Thinking

I received my B.F.A. in Industrial Design from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in the spring of 2017. My formal education taught me to practice and value design thinking as a way to approach all areas of my professional career. As a strategist and researcher, I bring empathy and human-centric methodologies to each and every project I touch.


The latest and greatest

As my experiences and skills grow, so does my resume.


My Passions:

UX Research & Strategy

Right now, you can find me researching and strategizing at Simon/Myers’ Chicago office! I collaborate with a team of strategists and researchers and work across our various departments to deliver work that exceeds our clients’ expectations.
