Hi there! I'm Emily.
I'm a user experience designer and researcher with an interdisciplinary background in public health, health policy, and digital media. I bring my anthropology and sociology trained lens to my design process, which is research-driven, human-centered, and above all, intentional and inclusive. I believe good design can facilitate change, empower communities, and make people's lives easier and more enjoyable.
I spent my undergraduate years thinking about how to craft contextually appropriate, community-centered policies and programs that would enable populations to achieve better health status. And for the past two years, I worked on improving digital resources that aimed to educate, inspire, and empower HIV communities.
Both experiences required me to center a community's experience when coming up with solutions to achieve a certain goal. As seemingly disparate as those experiences are, they have been crucial in shaping me into a user-centered designer.
I'd love to chat about project collaborations, work opportunities, or just about anything design-related. Feel free to reach out!
