My education and four years of industry experience as a graphic designer have prepared me to be a successful design educator and researcher. My graduate thesis focuses on using design research methods such as consciousness-raising groups, content analysis, and surveys. These methods led me to create a brand for a web platform that invites women to share their health experiences and read through a story index of health stories to educate themselves on health topics. This website is a product used to demystify women's healthcare through storytelling and facilitate relatability amongst participants. Through this two-year-long project and my professional work, I have developed the skills to work and teach within design fields such as user interface design and user experience research (UX/UI), branding, and web design.
