1. Started as an artist


My father handed me a film camera when I was 10 years old and I fell in love with the darkroom. I attended RISD for a brief stint, worked as a graphic desinger to pay for college and graduated from BU for Film & TV—but not before making a few videos.




2. Worked in advertising


I moved to Los Angeles where I worked up the ladder from editing TV commercials to producing them. I completed a Master’s in Communication from USC and pulled off Do Not Hire Me.




3. Pivot to product design


I doubled-down on my design skills with a certificate in UX. I’ve previously held senior design roles at Change Healthcare and Asurion before working at Goin. I currently host a podcast called Departures and I’m completing a certificate in Sustainable Transporation from UW.

In my spare time nerd-out about transportation, grow my design skills, and mentor new designers. My partner is a data scientist and my father has Alzhemier’s, who have each made me a strong supporter of #womenintech and #accessibility design.
