I’m an experienced user experience professional with expertise in the corporate wellness, health/fitness, and finance verticals.

I have a proven track record of conducting research, moderating sessions, documenting results, and reporting insights and can comfortably synthesize complex findings into clear, consumable content to communicate to multiple stakeholder teams. 

I’m thrilled to be a Data Science 4 All (DS4A) Fellow at Correlation One for spring 2021, adding data analytics fluency to my toolbox.

Ask me about my superpowers: collaborating remotely, re-designing services, improving customer experiences.
