Speaking & Workshops

America on Tech UX Design Program
Session Speaker on Usability Testing; Mentor · 2019, 2020
For the past two years, I've worked with amazing high school students during America on Tech's six-week long immersive program in User Experience Design. Formerly New York on Tech (NYOT)
RIT's Thought At Work
Workshop Co-Facilitator · 2019
Along with Kirsten Lindquist-Campana and Ryan Duquette, I co-facilitated "Encouraging Diverse Perspectives in Group Brainstorming" at RIT's Thought At Work— a design conference made for students by students.
My goal is to positively impact people’s lives by meeting people where they are.

I'm a research-focused designer dedicated to building impactful (mostly digital) products and services. I'm interested in understanding how people move through their worlds and I love working within multidisciplinary teams so we can ask, learn, and iterate together.

I'm a UX Designer at M&T Bank focusing on service design and research. I have a master’s degree in Digital Media from Georgia Tech and bachelor’s degrees in Communication and Sociology from SUNY Geneseo.

In addition to design, I like to bike, collect stickers, and film & edit.
