Hi, nice to meet you!

I'm a UX Researcher who currently works at WW (formerly Weight Watchers). My approach to research is influenced by my previous experiences as a human services professional, my multi-cultural upbringing, and my love for psychology. 

Dr. Brene Brown once said, "You have comfort and you have courage, but you can't have both at the same time. Choose." In both my personal and work life, I strive to choose courage.

I'm an advocate for prioritizing empathy and humanity in design & synthesizing complex research into intuitive, simple systems.

If there were words to summarize my views on life and work, it would be the following: "You have comfort and you have courage, but you can't have both at the same time. Choose." My co-workers and peers would describe me as someone who is courageous enough to try an new research approach, ask the difficult questions, and embrace constructive criticism.
