Who I Am

I am a UX designer who cares deeply about people, design and access.  My personal approach to UX is driven by the idea that:

“People ignore design that ignores people.” – Frank Chimero

Librarian turned UX Designer

Image of books - I've worked in libraries since I was 16.An experienced problem solver, I come from seven-years in libraries.  My primary job as a professional librarian was helping our users, and the organization, identify goals and overcome obstacles.

I chose to make the switch to UX because the field encompasses all my favorite aspects of librarianship: people, solving problems, prototyping solutions and responding to changing environments.

Why UX?

I love that working in UX means working with change.  Projects, users, problems — every day they’re different. I love the challenge of flexing and adapting to meet the current context and digging deep to uncover the true motivations of our users.  I love analyzing problems and applying intentional design to creating meaningful solutions.


I am big lover of food, books and travel.  Currently, my husband and I live with our surly cat in the Salt Lake City area but previously, we have called the Bay Area, Columbus (OH), Vancouver (BC) and the small country of Luxembourg home.

I can frequently be found around town at coffee shops or local meetups, particularly those sponsored by Product Hive and Ladies that UX.  I’d love to connect and discuss UX design or share some of my favorite books!
