I’m a user experience researcher with a background in global education and entrepreneurship.
I moved back to San Francisco (my hometown!) in 2014 after eight years in China and Chile.
Most recently in Chile, I taught entrepreneurship classes at universities with a focus on design thinking and user experience. This inspired me to return to San Francisco to immerse myself in the world of user experience research and design. I’ve worked with organizations of all sizes, from early-stage startups to multinational corporations.
My work has been featured in a wide range of publications:
- The Muse / Forbes: The Secret to Creativity & Productivity
- The Muse / Forbes: Working Abroad? How to Give a Presentation in the Local Language
- RTInsights: How Wearables and Real-Time Data Prevent Fatigue-Related Accidents
- Marianne Elliott’s blog: The Courage to Disconnect
I’m a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley and General Assembly’s User Experience Design Immersive, and earned a Diploma in Creativity and Innovation from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
