I'm a designer with a wide range of experiences and interests including UI and UX design, visual design, product design, print design, project management and quality assurance. My current role is a Creative Director in the Center for Technology and Data Management at RTI International, a large, global non-profit research organization.
At RTI, I lead projects from concept creation to execution while collaborating with clients, UX researchers, and developers to ensure a positive and intuitive user experience. I manage projects throughout the product development life cycle ensuring high-quality deliverables that engage diverse users and are accessible to a wide audience.
I mentor and foster the growth of a team of talented individuals with roles ranging from UI designers, UX designers, accessibility experts, and project managers. We create user-centered innovative digital and print solutions that focus on improving educational and health outcomes through human centered design. I work directly with our team of developers at every step of the process to ensure feasibility of all designs.
I have structured my team to function as a creative agency within a broader research and technology practice, working directly with external clients ranging from federal government agencies to foundations and non-profits.
I'm currently in North Carolina living with a hubby, two cats, and a giant dog. When I’m not steeped in design and strategy, I love to spend my free time traveling around the globe.
