About me

My work

I’m a mixed-methods product research leader with 15+ years of research experience in variety of industries, including Fintech, Edtech, social media, B2B tooling, and academia. I value empowerment-focused leadership and have expanded my skills through coaching training with the Co-Active Training Institute.

I started my industry research career working on a large, scaled UX research practice at Meta. Subsequently, I grew into a researcher-builder as a member of the founding research teams at growth-stage companies, such as Credit Karma and Udemy. I’ve partnered with cross-functional teams to inform all phases of product development, including strategic discovery, prototype testing, and evaluation of released products.

I believe in enabling the research community to learn from each other and have co-organized research community events during my time at Reduct.Video and my collaborations with Curiosity Tank and the San Francisco User Research Meetup Group. I have also advised junior UX researchers and academic researchers transitioning into industry UX research and have been a mentor with the UXPA Mentorship Program.


I have Master’s degrees in Human-Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University, and in Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology from the University of Oxford. I did my Bachelor’s in Cognitive Science at Vassar College. I’m Nielsen Norman Master certified with specialties in UX Research and UX Management.

I completed 104 hours of coursework with the Co-Active Training Institute, including Coaching Fundamentals, Fulfillment, Balance, Process, and Synergy.
