I graduated from Georgetown University with a major in Chinese language. After graduation, I served as a Princeton in Asia fellow based in China.

While in China, I served as both an English teacher at a university in Wuhan and a project manager for PlaNet Finance China, the China branch of an international microfinance consultancy based in Beijing.

It was during my time designing financial education tools at PlaNet Finance that I was first exposed to the design process, and its ability to solve problems beyond the aesthetic.

After returning from China, I continued my study of design, which led me first to a UX design position at Morningstar and to eventually heading up the design department at Avant.

I'm interested in bringing the human-centered design process to industries not traditionally affiliated with design, and using data to inform and validate design decisions.
