I am a UX Researcher on the Instagram team. Previously, I focused on improving the tools small businesses use to connect with their customers using Facebook. My insatiable curiosity about people and giving voice to their authentic stories began when I was a journalism undergrad at Northwestern University.

I was a 2014 Code for America Fellow and later led research for product teams at IBM and VMware. I’ve had a myriad of careers in addition to research including professional tap and jazz dancer, freelance photographer, visual designer, and marketing manager for construction firms.
