04/2021 – present Principal UX | UI Designer NEW YORK, CA

  • Reimagined the messaging window — the highest volume messaging channel — design, functionality, accessibility, and performance and built a new version that embodies product catalogs, comparisons, payments, appointment scheduling, etc, and increase the efficiency of our development. It appeals to brands and is more user-centric, mitigating the risk of adoption by validating with brands, prototyping, testing, iterating, conducting a thorough competitive analysis, and matching to our personas. The new experiences bring to light new features and functionalities that are an important part of consumers’ digital care and shopping experience. They are coupled with a visual builder that allows quick dev-free updates and deployments.
  • Wrote company-wide strategies for usability and design predicated on the pragmatic product development lifecycle then educated through group sessions by putting together decks and docs detailing crucial priorities for each respective strategy and putting them into action across the many globally distributed teams.

  • Managed the design system overhaul to line up with the new company brand and UX goals.
