    • Fidelity Investments

      UX Designer|Apr, 2015Nov, 2017

      My time at Fidelity started on the Online Customer Experience team as an Interaction Designer. I made prototypes of the homepage and log-in experiences using Sketch, Axure and code. Most notably I mocked up an entirely new experience for managing account statements using Angular JS. After working for the Online Customer Experience team, I had the opportunity to join an internal technology team as a UX Designer. This team was responsible for making applications for investment managers. As a UX designer, I gathered business requirements, rapidly prototyped from paper to pixel-perfect visual designs and help with CSS when needed.

          • Raw Art Works

            Board Member|Oct, 2015Current

            I truly believe in giving back, especially to the people and neighborhood that raised me. Raw Art Works (RAW) is a youth arts organization in Lynn, MA focused on art therapy. They provide programs in visual arts, digital film and more. RAW allowed me to be the designer I am today and by being a board member, I try my best to be the voice that represents the kids who walk through the front doors every day.
