I am a UX/UI Designer born and raised in New York City, passionate about bettering life through a health and wellness and content creation lens. A driven and curious learner, I leverage proficiency in Graphic Design, Software Development, and UX/UI Design. I attribute my success to a critical eye, hard work, and a supportive nature. I aspire to connect people to accessible designs.
Early in my UX/UI journey I noticed there was a lack of available resources for Junior UX/UI Designers, so I made it my goal to help alleviate some of the mystique surrounding real-life projects. What began as posts regarding my design process on Medium quickly turned into weekly reflections disguised as tips and tricks that I have learned along the way that I now share both on LinkedIn and Instagram. Although my posts began as a way for me to continue practicing my skill sets, they have allowed me to help others begin to find their footing in this field. My success in reaching this untapped audience was recently recognized by LinkedIn where I was honored as a LinkedIn Top Voice in Design for 2020. This accolade has helped strengthened my reach and has continued to inspire me to keep breaking the design barriers.
