I build people-centered products and systems.

I work at the intersection of organization and experience design. I currently lead the UX & Strategic Projects team at McClatchy, a 30-newsroom media company stretching from The Sacramento Bee to The Miami Herald. Before moving into this role, I led McClatchy’s design-thinking practice and worked as a product manager on the news product team. I am passionate about building inclusive and efficient processes, systems, and teams. 

I was selected for Poynter’s Leadership Academy for Women in Digital Media in 2019 and frequently lecture on design thinking and product strategy, including as a guest lecturer for UNC’s School of Media and Journalism. 

Before coming to McClatchy, I founded Kinethics, an interactive compliance-training company focused on anti-corruption law. I developed a love for journalism as a freelance writer and intern at CNN and Reese News Lab

Some other things I’m interested in: furniture design, theology, the Midwest, racial and gender justice, painting, creative writing and Dolly Parton.
