My unique professional path has given me a wealth of experience in various fields. My love of science and biology led me to earn a degree in diagnostic ultrasound with an emphasis in cardiology. After interning at Stanford University and working in the medical field for several years, I decided to change gears and learn design. Since then, I have been working as a designer and developer and am excited to take my career to new heights.

I am a passionate designer, developer and strategic thinker who delivers results in fast-paced start-up environments. I provide a unique perspective grounded in design, business, science, and client services. With a proven ability to understand customer and business needs and incorporate them into impactful designs, I pride myself on being a flexible and productive self-starter and quick learner who enjoys new challenges and team environments.
