I'm a UX Designer based in Vancouver, Canada. I hold a diploma in UX Design and a BBA with concentrations in Marketing & HR. Through my education, I am well versed in tackling problems that solve both user and business needs.
I have always felt creative at heart, and during my business studies, I took a visual communication design course where I fell in love with the design thinking process. Pivoting to UX seemed natural as it allowed me to merge my passion for being creative with my need to solve interesting problems.
I believe in a human-centered and iterative approach to design, aiming to make digital experiences that are beautiful, usable, and accessible.

Being a dog mom 🐩
In March this year, my partner and I brought home a beautiful toy poodle. We named him Arlo - he's a sweet, playful, and courageous little pup that loves to cuddle and go on adventures. I've enjoyed being a dog mom and am happy to have a mini companion. Arlo's puppyhood and new tricks are being documented on his Instagram @arlo.thetoy 📸
Being brought up in an active family, I've always felt a love for fitness. I was in skates and on skis from a young age, and when I was old enough to go to the gym, I found a passion for powerlifting. Currently, I am trying to pick up running - this has been a slow and steady process.
Family & Friends 💛
I feel fortunate to have a close-knit family and an incredibly supportive group of friends. My people have brought me so much happiness from going on trips together, visiting new breweries and places to eat, exploring local trails, and many more experiences.
My partner, Domenic, is my rock and motivates me every day to be better. He's a full-stack analyst that writes about his work on fullstaxx.com. He also dabbles in sportscard investing under the alias goat.sportscards on Instagram (we occasionally purchase Pokemon cards as well).
Mental Health & Wellness 🧘
Checking in with myself, reflection, and meditation have helped me grow as a human being. I make sure to take time for myself every day to live a happier and more fulfilled life. Lately, I've loved playing HeadSpace when I feel a need to calm down during the day or before going to bed.
Find me lost in the kingdom of Hyrule on a quest or searching for Korok seeds. If I'm not in Hyrule, then I may be decorating my Animal Crossing island, Nesterland. My typical weekend involves meeting with friends to play Catan over drinks and a video call. Games have brought me so much joy as I can explore new places and connect with my people over a friendly competition.
Continuous education is important to me. I've made a goal to read a few books this year, and am happy to be slowly ticking them off of my list. See my 2021 reading list below:
