About me

I am a Brooklyn-based digital product designer with 10 years of experience leading UX and visual design for mobile apps and websites. I currently work at Etsy as a Product Design Manager.

Driving creative strategy into tangible business outcomes, I lead design teams with inclusive and process-driven management. I work closely with stakeholders, product managers, and developers to create experiences that meet business needs and put users first. By helping facilitate conversations and integrating stakeholders into the design process, I look to create a shared sense of ownership in product design.

In my spare time, I enjoy knitting, drawing, making things out of clay, and baking. I have a twin sister who is also a talented graphic designer. Last but definitely not least, I spend most of my time with a 9-year-old rescue pitbull named Lucy.
