I am a San Francisco Bay Area native and former corporate real estate manager. I received my B.A. in Economics from UC Berkeley and later continued studies in Interior Design and Interior Architecture. After a decade wearing various hats in the real estate industry from analyst to deal maker to strategist to project manager, I decided that steamrolling through transactions was not the direction I wanted to take my career in. With invaluable experience in a traditional corporate setting, dynamic startup environment and love of design and architecture, I found that my passion lay at the intersection of business strategy and design. As a strategic designer I believe in telling great stories that inspire solutions that can change the world. Outside of my professional life I enjoy exploring the world with friends and family, listening to music, playing Auntie to two lovable mini-dachshunds, tinkering in woodshop, rooting for my favorite sports teams and simply laughing and dancing through life.
