How I work.
My education and experience have armed me with multiple skills, talents, and the optimism to believe in new ways to address old, wicked problems. Most recently, I worked as a Senior Design Strategist with a focus on Social Impact in the Siebel Center for Design at the University of Illinois.
I found joy in co-teaching the Design Thinking for Social Innovation and Design Thinking for Women’s Health and Well-being courses. I’ve also worked on incredible social impact projects on and off campus - exploring how apps can support students’ mental health and wellbeing, understanding the needs of women navigating breast cancer treatment options, and building pathways for diverse, intersectional women on campus to name a few.
What I've been up to lately.
