People are often taken aback when they find out that I used to be a Study Abroad Advisor. I've lost count of the times I've been asked, "How did you make the leap from that to design?" But to me, everything is influenced by design, whether it's subtle or overt. At UC Berkeley, I created services that enabled students to travel and learn overseas. Working with faculty, international partners, and other advisors, I streamlined backstage processes to create a seamless front-stage experience for students.
Now, as a Senior Product Designer on the Member Relationships team at WW, I'm responsible for designing experiences that connect members, coaches, and the broader WW community. Prior to this, at Fjord, I worked on a variety of projects across industries such as financial services and healthcare.
When I'm not designing, you can find me writing for Timid Magazine, mentoring aspiring product designers, or enjoying the sun in Oakland, CA. ◡̈
