UI/UX Designer
welcome

I am a UI/UX Designer who enjoys collaborating on projects to efficiently meet the business goals. Whether it’s remotely or in-person I believe as a team we can achieve more together. I am based in Charlotte, NC and yes, I am open to remote opportunities. I have expertise in the financial industry so I'm eager to pivot my career by seeking an opportunity as a UI/UX Designer in FinTech.

I have 4+ professional years of design experience.I’ve consulted 1-on-1 with 6+ small businesses nationwide to understand their business needs, strategized solutions then presented my design ideas. 

Working for BB&T now Truist I communicated and empathized with 40+ clients daily and documented our key takeaways from our calls. I’ve learned that listening and organization soft skills are important for UI/UX roles. With 4+ years in the banking industry I became very comfortable in the financial institution. In this position I learned the internal processors should improve the UI. I became passionate about improving the everyday tools we all useI’ve documented 20+ complaints from clients regarding their non-friendly banking resources. I believe that my past skills are aligned with my future position in FinTech.

As a UI/UX Design Intern at OffrBox I assisted with 5+ top client accounts by designing web layout concepts. Completed industry competitive analysis and user research to discover methods of improvements. I quickly became the Lead Design Intern for our group by UI prototyping and implementation with the development teameffectively as deadlines were near. 

As a Marketing Concierge at Allen Tate Company I juggled multiple projects at once, assisting multiple agents with their business needs.I’ve held monthly marketing workshops for 40+ agents.Strategized and consulted with teams on how to meet their marketing goals monthly and annually. Designed personalized branding identity and created marketing strategies for their business that successfully generated $1M+ in revenue.
