I'm a UX Strategist at Vanguard, one of the world’s largest asset managers, leading a design team to define the user experiences for Vanguard’s new cash offerings.


Before joining Vanguard, in my ten years of design consulting, I helped many types of organizations (including public sector and non-profit organizations, start-ups, and industry leaders like GE, Microsoft, and Nationwide) do things they had never done before.

I like learning new things: I've worked in domains ranging from community development to cybersecurity to healthcare to commercial real estate to advanced manufacturing.

I also taught UX Design to graduate and undergraduate students at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science.

Textile pattern design

I trained as an architect, which means that I like to learn how systems work and fit together; and I'm a former English major, which means that I like to figure out how to tell stories clearly and compellingly.

That's a bit about me!
