I am currently a SR. UX Manager at Acquia - where our mission is to deliver the universal platform the world’s greatest digital experiences. My leadership within the UX space focuses on delivering experiences that are accessible, usable, and seek to exceed user expectations. 9 years of working in the technology space has taught me that collecting user data is the most vital element and necessary responsibility of being a UX professional. I coach my team and organization on the value of human centered design by asking hard questions and connecting people - building connections not just within the product & engineering space, but across our organization to drive us closer to a truly delightful experience for our customers across every touchpoint of their journey. Outside of work at Acquia I love to experiment with cooking, traveling to niche places, and hiking around the midwest.
