I am a Senior Product Design Manager (UX/UI) with over 10 years’ experience leading and implementing the user-centered design process. During this time, my focus has been researching and designing interfaces for users of eCommerce websites and mobile applications.
Over the last 4 years, I've cultivated a range of leadership skills. This includes business strategy, thought leadership, determining staffing needs, role and level calibration, as well as recruiting, acquiring and training designers. I've also had the pleasure of managing many supremely talented designers and design managers simultaneously across multiple teams.
Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of working with some of the world’s best and most well-known brands, including Wayfair, Nestlé, Gerber, Staples, Rue La La, Ogilvy & Mather, MRM//McCann, and Fruit of the Loom.
I am accustomed to working closely with product managers, brand managers, art directors, project managers, front-end developers, and technical architects. My role while working with these cross-functional teams is to lead and execute a process oriented user-centered design process. This process includes scoping, various user research methodologies, requirements workshops, wireframe/functional specification creation, deliverable review sessions, and client management.
These skills make me uniquely qualified to lead design teams that ensure a process oriented design methodology is used to create a meaningful experience for the end user.
