I spend every day working at the intersection of design and technology and this couldn't make me happier. At my core I'm a UX/UI designer but I also leverage expertise in front-end development to create digital products that solve problems. As the lead designer at Optum's startup incubator known as "The Garage", my team and I work closely with entrepreneurs, developers, and marketers to rapidly build and test new digital products in the healthcare space. Through a combination of interviews, prototyping, and analytics we learn about our users and let their needs drive our design decisions. When I'm not working, you're likely to find me cooking, biking, or hanging out with my husband and our two adorable cats.
