I joined Facebook as a UX researcher on the Product Foundation team in early 2017. Our team works to ensure the holistic app experience is high quality and that it is easy for people to get to things on Facebook that are personally relevant to them. Prior to coming to Facebook I earned my PhD in community psychology at Wichita State University, where I studied older adults’ use of computers and social media’s impact on romantic relationships. Overall, I’m passionate and committed to ensuring that Facebook provides value to people’s lives and to the world. In my free time, you’ll find me spending time with my dog, binge watching tv shows and adventuring around the city.
