I’m a UX design leader based in Chattanooga, TN, USA. I help UX designers level up their skills and build products customers love.
I have a diverse background in UX design, leadership, and education. I’ve led design projects of all sizes, from the planning stages to deployment and delivery. I’ve managed multiple teams of early-career design professionals. As a facilitator at Center Centre, the UX design school, I worked closely with the team to design products and services that support UX designers at all levels of their careers.
I dedicate much of my time to the UX community. I founded the Chattanooga UX Design Meetup, the first community organization for UX design in Chattanooga. I’ve spoken internationally at conferences such as SXSW, Midwest UX, IA Summit (now IA Conference), and UX Cambridge (UK). I’ve appeared on numerous UX design podcasts. I’ve also published dozens of articles for UX designers on my blog and on Medium.
Before relocating to Chattanooga, I worked in the Philadelphia area as a senior experience designer at Happy Cog and the lead UX designer at AWeber. While in Philadelphia, I spoke at dozens of meetups and local events. I taught classes for Girl Develop It, led UX Book Club, and served on the board of Philadelphia’s UX community, PhillyCHI.
