I am a qualitative researcher on the Facebook Marketplace team in Seattle, WA. My curiosity about technology, human behavior, cultural context and the intersection of those three areas led me to pursue a career in UX research. I am passionate about impacting design decisions and product visions through research that benefits people around the world.

Prior to Facebook, I worked in multiple small and large technology companies in the Pacific Northwest where I had the opportunity to influence products from enterprise technologies, smart home devices, communication tools and wearable technology.

I received both my master’s degree in human centered design and engineering and bachelor’s degree in psychology and behavioral science from the University of Washington.
