I am a 3rd generation Seattle native which seems to be a rare thing these days. I broke family tradition of attending Seattle Pacific University and spent my college years in Arizona studying graphic design. I quickly learned Tempe wasn’t an ideal climate for me and moved back to Seattle after graduation with my best friend who is now also my husband.
My husband and I love to travel, work on home or art projects together, and be outside exploring the Pacific North West as much as possible. We chose to grow our family beyond our beloved dog through adoption via foster parenting. We’re honored to be called Mom and Dad by two amazing little humans named Zoe (8) and David (7). We are a family that is passionate about helping others, being involved in our large extended family, and enjoying all the Seattle area has to offer.
In the rare moments, I have time to myself you will usually find me making something with my hands in my art studio, reading, or walking with a Podcast in my earbuds.
My career has been eclectic in terms of roles and formal titles. The common theme has been helping teams deliver technology solutions that unlock retail experiences. I’ve played a roll in these by building, coaching, hustling to overcome challenges, researching customer needs, rapid prototyping to learn, and helping to keep empathy for our customer at the center of what we do.
I am excited to be part of a team where diverse experience and passion are celebrated.
