In my childhood, I designed spaceships with crayons and construction paper. As an adolescent, superheroes came alive with colored pencils and a sketchpad. As I have gotten older, I have since transitioned to graphics, photographs, and application designs using pixels on a computer screen. My childhood passions have blossomed into a career that I love and I welcome the opportunity to expand on the knowledge I have gained thus far.
The journey to where I am now has been full of people and experiences that have pushed me to grow as a person as well as helped me to develop a unique take on problem solving.VIEW EXPERIENCE
My goal is to make things people desire - things they will see, interact with, and love, knowing it was created down to the last pixel for them to enjoy.
I apply user-centered design practices to create intuitive, delightful, and compelling user experiences within proprietary healthcare applications. Assist in all stages of application development, from conception through development to testing and optimization. Successfully communicate design ideas and concepts to internal development and business teams.
I develop, refine, and communicate UX solution models through storyboarding, wireframes, visualization, and rapid prototyping. Use modern database technologies, platforms, and trends to provide the best solutions for both existing and new applications, all while working with confidential information in the healthcare space.
Designed and developed multiple web, mobile, iOS, and data/information solutions (internal and external) for the WireCrafters brand. Created systems and processes for data collection, increasing conversion rates and interaction by more than 250%. Developed and analyzed reporting activities such as trends in behavior, user interaction, conversion rates, and target segmentations, then designed and implemented enhancements and new solutions based on data.

Through the MBA program at Indiana University, I hope to acquire a more in-depth understanding of consumer behavior, strategic marketing and advertising, and the role design plays in the business world.
My career to this point has been a combination of purpose and thoughtful planning, and in order to continue to succeed and advance in my field, a concrete educational background encompassing the knowledge needed to navigate the business world is key.
My undergraduate degree from Indiana University blends my design background with marketing, advertising, and brand awareness that has helped me make significant strides towards achieving my overall career goals.
I have applied this education to my graduate work and in conquering even greater challenges with the help of fully developed managerial, marketing, and operational skills attained during the program.

Good designers have a keen eye for fixing things that are broken, unique backgrounds and experiences, and are responsible for how products look, feel, and behave.
Great designers are first and foremost curious about the world around them, constantly striving to fill the gap between poor design and usability. Great designers draw upon their observations of the world around them and then improve design standards as advocates for the user.
Whether observing human behavior, a poorly thought-out design, or creating a new idea altogether, a great designer must understand the context of the problem and produce a solution that is clean, concise, and most importantly beautiful.
