my design strengths

product informed

product informed

with a product management background at docusign, i design holistically by advocating for my users, while keeping in mind my stakeholder motivations and business goals

data driven

my academic background in business analytics means that i care deeply about using data to justify design decisions. i enjoy validating assumptions so that i can communicate the impact of my work on users and the business

feedback first

i’m the founder of preintern, which is an edtech side project that brings design, pm, and engineering students together to build real products on teams. building this profitable business with a near perfect student satisfaction score taught me about the importance of a growth mindset, which i think of as my superpower

my career transition

four seasons

i think that there’s seasons to my career. seasons change regardless of whether or not you think about it. in the past, i've been someone who's put my faith into the elements, but now i want to be in the environment that's right for me

how it began

while building my startup, i began learning design to create my own website. i then managed the design system for my students and began to seriously consider this as a career. i love design, where craftmanship and community matter
