how i got here... ٩(˘◡˘)۶

I'm currently a UX/UI Designer at a startup called Lyceum Health, after an exciting transition from working with numbers to pixels...

Previously, I was studying Actuarial & Financial Mathematics at McMaster University, but in 2020, I decided to pivot towards something that had always intrigued me – design.

The Design of Everyday Things by Don Norman was my first intro to the UX world. And when I started my bootcamp at Designlab, everything started to feel real. I was excited to blend my analytical/problem-solving background with artistic expression.

Soon after my career shift, I found myself at a startup called Lyceum Health, where I have the privilege of working on a B2B desktop product for healthcare workers and their patients. From the beginning, I was involved in the entire product lifecycle, from ideation to launch. Through this opportunity, I have learned the importance of establishing a process and best practices. Collaboration, open communication, and constantly asking for feedback have been crucial to help lead to our success and fast turnaround times.

I also freelanced for a few months at another startup called Quantified Citizen, and won 1st place in a Designathon organized by McMaster University.
