About me

As a UI & Visual Designer, I specialize in infusing a vibrant and modern touch into my design systems and end products. I’m a high energy professional – a strategic thinker and empathetic creator. I bring ideas to life on the screen while ensuring a powerful and cohesive brand presence across all digital platforms.

What I do

During my current role as Senior UI Designer at The Motion Agency, I have helped expand the agency capabilities — winning more substantial and frequent web projects spanning from large scale healthcare websites to product calculators.

As the sole web designer, I guided in implementing a web process which we call the five D’s — Discover, Define, Design, Develop, and Deploy (similar to other models such as the Double Diamond). I built client intake forms, functionality documents, and trained account and creative teams to gain a broader understanding of web.

Beyond design:

In addition to creative output, I was a founding member of the agency’s DE&I Committee, helping to spearhead new initiatives in diverse hiring efforts, organizing culturally significant events and town halls, and leading agency-wide discussions. I am also a member of the Learning & Development committee where we share and develop resources from anything to do with Figma tutorials or personal development and productivity such as ways to capitalize time affluence and find flow states.

I also proposed and designed an agency-wide intranet for employees to easily access HR related materials, quick links to insurance plans, 401Ks, timesheets, onboarding documents, tutorials, company subscriptions,  and a newsfeed of announcements that is easily managed by HR within Wordpress.

Outside the digital realm, I immerse myself in all things creative. As an illustrator and painter, my art studio is my zen space. When I’m not getting my hands dirty, you’ll find me lost in books – from fiction to history (yes, I think about the Roman Empire quite often). I share a cozy Chicago-style bungalow home with my husband, Joe, and our two feline companions, Lee Lou and Banannie.
