I am inherently collaborative as a designer. My Psychology, Biology, Business Management and Design backgrounds enable me to speak the language of user researchers, designers, stakeholders, and clients, and consider their needs when making design decisions. My experience as a competitive public speaker helps me clearly communicate my ideas with different audiences.
At the same time, I specialize in Problem Solving and Design Thinking. I'm excited by the process of deriving user needs from research, creatively leveraging the power of technology to satisfy those needs, and thinking critically about the constraints and edge cases to make sure the solution scales.
I am a team-oriented individual. As part of a female business-owners co-working group based in Toronto, I engage in active discussions and offer to help the members of my community in any way that I can. I participate in community brainstorm sessions to work with women when they feel 'stuck' in either their business or personal lives. I also work with new business owners to establish an online presence as they pivot their strategies under uncertainties caused by the pandemic.
I am an enthusiastic believer in teaching others how to voice their thoughts coherently and confidently. I have led series of public speaking workshops at the Newcomer Centre for Peel for youth, planning and executing workshops that encourage youth to speak their truth. I believe that guidance and support are important for every individual and strive to offer mine whenever I find anyone who needs it.
