Growing up, I have always been intrigued by why my smart and capable parents have trouble with electronics, from computers to steamers. This curiosity eventually led me to complete a PhD in human factors. Currently, I am a Sr. Design Researcher at TD Bank Group.
I am interested in empowering users through technologies that work for them in real-life settings, and I love leveraging my UX expertise for social good.
My PhD work investigated how to design interfaces so people can collaborate more easily while play digital tabletop board games (imagine a table’s surface is entirely a touch screen). I challenge you to tell me about a PhD topic that is more fun than this!
Since then, I have worked in finance, education, healthcare, and non-profit. Connect with me to chat about UX, board games, no-knead bread, my crazy travel stories in Italy, event coordination (especially weddings!), and volunteering with children.
Feel free to message me, connect with me on LinkedIn, or check out my resume.
