About Me

Howdy đź‘‹

UX Lead for Omnichannel Originations at KeyBank. 

As part of product realization, I work closely with product owners to stay abreast of UX development across origination squads, and to ensures creative direction aligns with digital enterprise design standards. My professional introduction to UX manifested from graphic design roles stepping into the realm of research and visual design primarily within marketing and e-commerce. I have 6 years of experience in UX with both Waterfall and Agile development methodologies.
 
Outside of KeyBank, I am pursuing a Master of Science in User Experience Design at Kent State University. I am a fitness and health enthusiast (CrossFit), an adventure seeker, a cultural enthusiast, and a life-time student. I have bachelor’s degrees in Communication Studies (BA) and Graphic Design (BFA).
