UX Product Designer in Vancouver, she/her

About

Currently on a design consulting journey to learn the creative business and grow leadership. I had generalist experience designing in education (preschool to higher education), branding identity, local small business tech, non-profits, and blockchain. I'm available for full-time or new contract opportunities to collaborate in a team setting.

My superpowers are storytelling, UX research, and coding. My strengths are ideating concepts, interaction design, and semantic code. I'm looking for roles in tech tools like SaaS, social impact, and lifestyle experience.
