I am a human-centered designer, strategist, and researcher collaborating with communities and multidisciplinary teams to co-create experiences that promote equity, prosperity, and justice.

I’ve worked and played with teams at Foundation MedicineUpstream Health Innovations of Hennepin Healthcare System, Mad*Pow, and the Mayo Clinic Center for innovation. I received my BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and co-founded the Designer’s Oath. I sit on board of directors for the non-profit Creature Conserve, advocating for collaboration between artists and scientists. I’m also an illustrator and love making science-informed art, even though my family wishes I’d stop hanging pictures of microorganisms around our house and just paint pretty things.
