I am a qualitative researcher in 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 & Behavioral Science from the University of Washington.

Interests

Psychology, mindfulness, compassion, social impact, ethnographic research, and behavioral analysis.
