I am a design researcher, strategist, and facilitator interested in understanding the narratives around me to create designs that tell stories.
Before coming to CMU, I received my B.A. in Psychology and conducted research with kids for both the Harvard Lab for Developmental Studies and Children's Hospital Boston. When I graduated, I pivoted and worked in the financial inclusion space. My first job was with the Massachusetts Governor's Office of Housing and Economic Development. I later worked as an Innovation Strategist at a small non-profit that used design thinking to create innovations around financial security.
