User Experience Designer

Dexcom, San Diego, CA

In 2020, I joined the team at Dexcom, making continuous glucose monitors for people with type one diabetes, and my primary focus was on the Dexcom ONE product line. Most notably, I translated all Dexcom ONE requirements to their receiver hardware interface designs and flows, and worked with the engineering team to take the Dexcom ONE app to completion and release. I lead the early design phase for a future product line, designing and collaborating on multi-tier, multi-site user testing and early product systems design. I also evangelized accessibility in design throughout the product organization.

Social Media Manager + Master's Student

University of washington, Seattle, WA

In 2019, I attended the Master's in Human Computer Interaction and Design at the University of Washington, and simultaneously worked as their social media manager. Outside of learning research methods and hands-on design projects, I revamped their Youtube channel, 4x their Instagram subscriber count and published a five part design theory podcast on Spotify.

Product Designer

Stanford school of Medicine, Stanford, CA

My design career started in 2014 when I joined the Stanford School of Medicine's Habit Lab, who was building web apps for health behavior research.
