Anyone who knows me well enough knows I am a Grandma at heart and crazy cat lady. I would rather stay in with my husband and kitties and watch Netflix than go out, I wake up before the sun rises on most days, and head to bed before most primetime shows air. I love my two kitties (Dexter and Leona) and hope to get a doggy or two when we finally buy a house. I enjoy pretty much anything outdoors; hiking, kayaking, camping, snow skiing, snow shoeing, water skiing, swimming, running, target and trap shooting, golfing, rock climbing, horseback riding, etc.

I think I found my calling with user experience design. I knew growing up I wanted to do something that involved computers, as I fell in love with the first one I got in 4th grade. It wasn’t until fall quarter of freshman year in college when I took intro to psychology, that I really wanted to combine human thinking and experience with design. I’m fascinated with how the tiniest detail can make or break a user’s experience. I’m having the best time learning something new everyday. In my spare time I enjoy expanding my skills for fun, whether it’s designing icons, patterns, or infographics, just to name a few. My interest in visual, graphic design and typography is just blossoming. I’ve most recently become interested in learning more about the future of UX in Virtual Reality.
