ABOUT

LATEST: I'm a Co-Founder of Picture This Clothing - a company launched with my friends on Aug 17, 2016 (and went viral).
I'm a professional experimenter, writer and keynote speaker. I'm also the mother of two girls named Sophia and Zia, and two cats named Rocky and Adrian, and I am the girlfriend of a beautiful, shy man who likes to remain mostly anonymous. 

I'm passionate about sharing the stories I've lived throughout 18 years as a designer, UX practitioner, manager, co-worker, partner, business owner, and employee counselor.  
I'm inspired by fun, Muppets, Disney and a good sprinkling of rebellion.

I weave in experience and learnings from life as a mom, a woman-in-tech, a life designer and as a human being. I'm also a coach, I like to help people. And teams of people.
