📝 Bio
I'm an insightful and adaptable problem-solver specializing in digital product design + design systems. 
I have over a decade-long career as an in-house and agency print, branding, web + digital, and product designer.
I'm currently working with Kount, an Equifax Company as a Senior UX/UI Designer to help financial institutions and businesses detect and prevent fraud through the shaping and building of enterprise software and tools.
🔎 Interests
A11Y + Inclusive Design
Having a deep understanding of Accessibility and Inclusive design is critical for designers. Understanding how to design for accessibility and with (not for) a diverse set of people is something I strive to improve on.

Full Stack Design
I partner with developers often and speak the same language. While I have some skills in CSS, HTML, and JS, I'm expanding my skillset as a designer by completing courses in front-end development from SuperHi.
