I am currently the Product Design Manager for a software security company called Privafy located in Burlington, MA. I have been working in the field of design for over 20 years, beginning my career as a graphic design until moving into the field of user experience in 2007. My undergraduate degree is in graphic design, along with a minor in art history, from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell. I continued my education with a graduate certificate in user experience from Bentley University before obtaining my master’s degree in user-centered design from Brandeis University.
My first UXPA Boston conference was the 6th annual event held at Bentley College in 2007, and I have been attending conference and monthly meetings ever since. I enjoy giving back to the community at large through mentorship programs available on ADPList, Designed.org and UXPA International, reaching experience designers from across the globe.
