As a product design practice lead and mentor, I focus on building teams, design practices, and products, through a human-centered approach. I mentor and collaborate with designers in all phases of the design process to foster creativity, innovation, and a user-centric mindset. I also design onboarding programs to help level up new designers, and help build design practices that emphasize inclusivity, empathy, and accessibility.
I have led the design and development of several successful teams and products, working closely with cross-functional teams, including developers and product managers, and liaising with stakeholders and business leads.
I care deeply about open source for social impact and was a speaker on the subject at RailsConf 2022.
