I am a UX designer with 10 years experience in agencies and product teams. I was born and raised in Ireland, and moved to Florida before High School. I went to the University of Central Florida and majored in Graphic Design – Digital Media, with a minor in Business.

In 2015, I moved to Bangkok, Thailand with my husband. I worked for a major Thai IT firm as the head of UX and in product ownership.

An opportunity to work for Splunk in San Francisco brought us back to the US in 2018. In early 2020, an opportunity to lead a team brought me to Symplr where I lead UX and Tech Writing teams. The teams support product releases across 3 business units, and I am leading an effort to design a component library for the whole business.
