More about me

Design is a passion that crosses over from my professional to personal life. 

In March 2018, I became a proud parent, which has been an incredible learning experience. My depth of knowledge of baby gear design as a user has increased, and I love having all new insights into the category.


I have been a contributing writer for the sustainable design blog for many years. I love this hobby of writing about design keeps me on my toes with what is new and notable. 

I also speak about design at conference, colleges, and other design-related events. You can find more information on my upcoming talks here.

I love being active and outside! I have thoroughly enjoyed multi-day hikes on the Appalachian trail, kayaking in Belize, sitting beside the Havasupai Reservation waterfalls in the Grand Canyon, and scaling my way into the Black Canyon in Gunnison, CO.

When I'm at home, living on a small lake house in Michigan, I can be found cycling, at the gym, practicing yoga, vermicomposting, or spending quality time with my husband, son, and my lovable Bernese Mountain Dog.
