Global UX Design Senior Manager
I am a builder.
I'm a builder of people, teams, products and processes.
Most recently, I built Nu Skin's UX design team from the ground up to support 15 teams locally and 5 global regions. Directing UX design activities and managing designer’s interaction with research methodologies and strategy. Managing design system team and interaction with development in agile sprint work and design sprints. Customer first mentality, focusing on user centered design that supports business objectives and delights users.
Worked in agile fashion with product owners, CX, development, marketing and others to build trust and take ownership of design system to document design libraries, development components and best practices.
Leader in UX research efforts to satiate curiosity with behavioral, qualitative and quantitative methodologies as part of a larger process to gather data and show the ROI of UX efforts and value of UX team to the organization.
Bias for action in starting Unicorn University to train designers in basic front-end development and web technologies. Lead UX Guild to help define and socialize design standards and further deep dives into industry processes, tools and methodologies.
I love to see the world, experience new cultures and learn about what excites and drives people! Always asking why and trying to learn more.
