Greetings Citizen!

I have over a decade of experience in design, development and strategy for the digital space. My passion for solving complex problems has enabled me to create dynamic digital training experiences for Starbucks employees around the world. I am driven to create an engaging, fun and useful digital experience in all my work. I work hard to continue my professional development, expand my skill sets and empower my team to the same.

I have had the great fortune to work as a creative leader and user experience (UX) generalist for Starbucks. While there are many UX Designers in this company, I have the unique position to design the user experience for our employees (partners) by creating web-based content to train, inform and support them everyday. I am constantly driven to improve the usability of our digital platforms, the effectiveness of our content and the learning experience for our partners.
