A native of New England (now living in Portland, Oregon), I attended The School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University in Boston, MA, graduating with a combined BFA degree from Tufts University. I currently work at SurveyMonkey where I Lead Product for the Audience & Contribute teams; B2B (Audience Panel Buyers) and B2C (Panel Survey Respondents) in both responsive web and native mobile products. Previously at SurveyMonkey, I was the Lead Designer for the Growth and Billing teams, which encompassed running A/B tests on top of funnel pages such as onboarding, homepage, pricing page, and purchase flows. Prior roles at companies spanned across agencies and consultancies.
My role encompasses IC, Design Lead, and Manager. I participate in the full life cycle of product solutioning; from strategy, through user research and design, to the QA of builds prior to release. I approach each project with a blended understanding of business and user goals, and apply design thinking and user centered methodologies as often as I can, but remain flexible depending on project scope & timelines. One of my particular areas of passion is fostering collaborative relationships across product teams and cross functional team members.
In my spare time I love checking out all the food carts, craft/design events, and live music Portland has to provide. Working in the pottery studio continues to be a creative outlet for me, with anything having to do with the outdoors following as a close second.
