I am a Therapist turned UX Researcher. I have over 5 years of combined experience in academic, clinical and user research in the B2B and B2C space. My training in Speech-Language Pathology as well as my work as a therapist in the healthcare setting, enables me to bring a unique human-centered & empathetic approach to my work as a Qualitative and Quantitative Researcher. When I am not being a badass researcher, I am either hiking, dancing, cooking or exploring new spots in NYC.
