I am a Product and Design Leader with a strong user-centered focus working on web and mobile products
Most recently, I led design, UX research, and content strategy as the Director of Product Design at 23andMe. I believe that design positively impacts business when you create lovable products that solve problems, improve lives, and make people happy. I’m obsessed with learning a little something about everything.
For over 20 years, I’ve built teams that have launched innovative solutions across domains including content publishing, entertainment, education, and consumer health. I co-led an innovation incubator and co-founded two start-ups. I have also been an independent consultant and worked for a pop star.

We want our kids to become creators, not just consumers. We want them to think about what goes into building software and hardware and how the internet works.
I was honored to speak on the Mobile Identity Panel at the Apigee I Love APIs Conference – discussing personal privacy and convenience.
