Originally from Chicago, I attended college at Georgetown University as a Chinese language major. Shortly after graduation, I moved to China to serve as a Princeton in Asia fellow.
While in China, I first served as an English teacher at a university in Wuhan and later as a project manager at PlaNet Finance China, the China branch of an international microfinance consultancy.
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 team at the Chicago-based fintech startup, Avant.
