about me

I am currently a Master’s student at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, where I am exploring the intersection of human centered design and technology, and also a childbirth professional.

I am powered by deep listening and thinking as means to produce thoughtful and sustainable solutions. These sensibilities were honed in on while working with non-profits such as StoryCorps and Tribeca Film Institute. At both of these organizations, I designed opportunities for communities to engage with tools to express their own stories. The common thread in all of my work is the intention to center individuals and communities impacted by dominant structures, and find careful and innovative ways to disrupt them.

I am incredibly thankful to have worked as a doula and childbirth educator in New York City for the past 6 years. This kind of role has offered me the ability to demonstrate flexible approaches and thoughtfulness in delicate situations. Fun fact: I’ve seen over 60 babies be born!

I enjoy marrying my unique experiences to design processes, and applying learned research methodologies to create great products, whether digital or service-focused.

I obtained my Bachelor’s in Sociology from Pomona College and live in Brooklyn with my toddler and partner.
