WHO I AM
I am a woman of critical thought and action. Since I was young, I've been an artist and always been motivated to enact equitable change in my communities. When I'm not working, I'm cooking and writing for my food blog, creating paintings and other visual art, hiking or spending as much time as possible in nature, and volunteering with community orgs.
WHAT I DO TODAY
For the last year, I've worked as a hybrid product manager and designer at a digital services agency, Fearless, leading a dev team to design and build 2 integrated products: a social health screening and navigation tool and a resource directory for the Baltimore City Health Department.
Outside of my 9-5 job, I co-lead Code for Baltimore to engage city residents and improve city government technology through design, guest lecture at University of Maryland College Park and Baltimore County about human centered design in tech and public policy, lead design for NODE.Health, a non-profit focused on evidence in digital medicine, and mentor with StartingBloc, a fellowship focused on cultivating personal and professional development with social innovation leaders.
WHAT I HAVE PREVIOUSLY WORKED ON
Previous projects include human centered design and digital tech adoption management to help start the Innovation Department at LifeBridge Health, communications and policy design at the Baltimore City Health Department, designing branding strategy and product design with 15+ organizations in the USA and Europe, and enriching the lives of girls and volunteers at Girl Scouts (which included a lot of smiles, compassion, and marketing).
I've been lucky enough to live, study, and work in 3 countries across 3 continents and, along the way, built a comprehensive understanding of working on diverse teams.
