I have worked with design and business teams for over 10 years. During that time I have enthusiastically taken on varied roles — production designer, UX designer, team leadership and workshop facilitator.
Much of my career has been with start-ups and on teams with a startup mentality. The energy and grit that often accompanies a startup environment seems to facilitate forward thinking, problem solving and initiative. Three of my core motivations.
I have been called a unicorn — able to ask the right questions and use a wide variety of tools and skills to take projects to the next level and exceed internal or external client expectations. I am also described as highly collaborative and a skilled communicator.
With an undergraduate degree in Graphic Design from the University if Northern Colorado in Greeley, I have a strong base in design.
However, I also spent three years doing master's level coursework in psychology through Colorado Christian University. That education has not only honed my communication and listening skills — the study of human minds has also strengthened my ability to lead teams to find unique solutions to customer needs.
