I’m currently solving problems for travellers, at sherpa°

I am a curious, self-driven product designer passionate about great UX in digital and physical products, design mentoring — particularly for young women entering the field, and diversifying the tech world.

Through my experience working end-to-end on enterprise financial products, I help emerging companies achieve product-market fit through data-driven product design.

I recently pivoted to travel tech as a Senior Product Designer for sherpa°—helping travellers move freely around the world and shift the way the world's leading travel providers think about travel identification.

On the enterprise side, I've learned how to deliver data-driven results with more limited resources, cumbersome approval processes, and multiple stakeholders. This diverse background has allowed me to develop a flexible design process to create user-friendly experiences and achieve conversion rates regardless of the budget or timeline.
