A Little Bit More About Me! 😊
Currently based in San Jose, CA, I hold a certificate in UX/UI Design, B.A. in Psychology, and Minor in Education from UC Berkeley.
From a young age, I knew I wanted to spend my life being creative and doing something where I could express myself. I loved taking art electives in school, and I remember filling out an "About Me" worksheet in second grade saying that I wanted to be either a figure skater or a teacher when I grew up. Two completely different career paths, but even back then I knew I wanted to be working as a creative who got to talk to people. It only made sense when I discovered the UX and product design field - I get to be artsy and study people all day. It's perfect!
Since then, I've worked in several different client- and customer-facing roles –from being a behavioral technician working with kids on the autism spectrum, to working in sales for a small insurtech start-up, I've developed a profound understanding of the customer journey and have become accustomed to working in fast-paced environments that require me to think quick on my feet. I am an inquisitive individual, and I'm always looking to figure out the "why" in everything.
Outside of design, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, scouting out new coffee shops to try, and making my sister take candid photos of me around the city.
