    RESEARCH, STRATEGY, DESIGN

    I am a design practitioner with experience managing the design process for clients and teammates, as well as a leading the design efforts for strategy, information architecture, and research. I currently work at UPMC Health Plan as a Senior UX Designer where I lead a team working to improve several portals for members, brokers, providers, and employers.

    With my background in consulting, I have designed strategies and interfaces for a variety of products including mobile, tablet, web, embedded and ambient displays. With a focus on human-centered design, I bring experience in information and interaction design, prototyping, design strategy, and design research methods to my projects.

     

    My portfolio includes work with companies including enterprise clients (McDonald's, Precor, PharMerica, Robinson Fans, TrackAbout) and start-ups (Jazz, GroupShop, GradeNation, Lockhouse). Please contact me for any work samples.
