As a Senior Product Designer at YLabs, I create healthcare solutions and interventions for youth across Eastern Africa. Currently, I am working on CyberRwanda, a digital platform that seeks to improve the health and livelihoods of young Rwandans in the hopes of preventing unintended pregnancy, STIs and HIV.
I strongly believe in the power of community and mentorship; I teach UX at Juno College of Technology and help support students in their design journeys at Springboard. Previously, I led all UX efforts at Art & Science, including the website UX strategy and design for the Toronto Biennial of Art, the first ever in the city’s history, as well as the creation of an experiential screen display to help build a sense of connection amongst employees at Roche.
In addition, I worked on a research initiative with Together Project for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to inform the design of a mobile tool for Syrian refugees. At Canada Life, I was part of the Digital Customer Experience team responsible for creating the organization’s first ever design system, leading to the full website rebrand.
Lastly, my freelance consulting practice is handled through Toptal, where you can learn more about my work and hire me for a project. If you’d like to collaborate on design projects, you can also reach directly via email.
