Hi, I’m Jenn, a designer currently living in Oakland. I am happiest when strengthening design teams and creating useful products. I have experience in developing teams, building design systems, and implementing best practices. I aim to help companies realize the benefits of a well-working design organization.

With over 11 years of experience, I am a result of the talented people I’ve worked with. I attribute my work ethics to the companies I’ve been a part of from freelancing with fast-paced New York City agencies to navigating through tricky challenges in a start-up. Through these experiences, I have been able to hone in on my creative/work process. I am conditioned for accelerated environments, I have an "eagle eye" for design, and I am always fighting for the user.

I love being able to tell brand stories through building cohesive user experiences from end-to-end. Although there may not be anything as satisfying as winning a pitch, I am currently dedicating my time to scaling in-house design teams. I strongly believe that design, at its core, is an interdisciplinary practice, and I am eager to help companies discover design practices that work for them. My leadership style is fueled by a passion in helping designers find their voice and building their creative confidence. I strive to cultivate productive and inspiring work environments.

Outside of design, I am a cooking connoisseur, a house plant collector, and a social secretary to a pup named Pineapple.
