Product Designer, December 2017 - Present
As a product designer on the home insurance team, I partner with a product owner to improve the quoting and purchasing processes. I help shape the strategy and design direction through prototyping, user research studies, and defining and implementing design solutions. Additionally, I work with my UX teammates to maintain consistency across the home, auto, and renters insurance products. I also help design and facilitate workshops to improve our internal processes and broaden company knowledge of design thinking.
Experience Designer, April 2017 - December 2017
I designed wireframes, clickable prototypes, site maps, and user flows that define user experiences. I also helped test said prototypes in usability studies, synthesized findings, and developed a go-forward strategy.
Experience Designer, August 2015 - April 2017
I created interactive prototypes, annotated wireframes, site maps, and user flows to articulate and define digital experiences. Additionally, I designed stimuli for user testing, and prepare and present materials to clients. I have worked with Humana Inc., BJ’s Wholesale, Citizens Bank, Colonial Williamsburg, and Ad Council. I’ve also worked in the SapientNitro Accelerated Prototyping lab where I designed technology that maps noise pollution.
