Much like Taylor, I have also had many different eras in my professional life. My eras have included outdoor recreation, higher education advising, DEI programing, teaching, and of course design.
My outdoor education era
As a camp counsellor and later camp director, I developed high-level emotional intelligence, leadership, community-building, staff management, and creative collaboration skills.
My higher education administration era
When I worked in higher education student advising, I worked hard to create a more inclusive campus. I developed DEI curriculum, facilitated safe-space workshops, delivered many DEI presentations, and created diversity and inclusion policy before this work was cool.
My education era
Teaching & facilitation
I have taught courses and seminars in a wide range of subjects including history, sailing, student success strategies, technology, diversity and inclusion, and design.
My creative era
Design is the process of taking the convoluted and making it consumable. As a neurodivergent and LGBTQ+ identified designer, my passion for accessibility and inclusive design comes from both personal and professional lived experience.
I have an undergraduate degree in Humanities and UX certification from NN/g. My strengths include:
I’m a versatile designer with a passion for art direction, UX/UI, data design, presentation design, and video production. Accessibility and inclusivity are the foundation of my design philosophy and practice. I love inclusive user experience, collaborative co-design work, and creating with emerging technologies.
