Hi there! 👋🏾

Thanks for visiting.
I am an innovation, design and UX strategist who builds inclusive and ethical products, empowers teams and facilitates dialogues where curiosity and experimentation can flourish. As a woman of color thriving with hearing loss, advocating for marginalized voices and communities mean a great deal to me. I believe in designing for inclusion, prioritizing accessibility, building with an ethical code and being mindful of whose experiences we are excluding.

I am the Director of Innovation at the Ad Council, where I am focused on scaling design thinking and agile practices, keeping an eye on emerging tech trends, creating digital products for social good and nurturing a culture of innovation. If you're ever in NYC, come say hi!

In my spare time, I teach UX Design to NYC high school students through the NYOT Program. I am a member of Women in Innovation, IXDA, Within, Global CFP day and Shine Bootcamp. I enjoy lifting, knitting and exploring the outdoors.

I have recently spoken at JSConfUS, Abstractions,  Anxiety Tech and the Big Design Event. I will be speaking at the Radical Research Summit as well as leading a workshop at the Write/Speak/Code NYC meetup. If you'll be around, let me know!
