I am an engineer turned designer who strives to create a healthier future by addressing large threats to population health. I have developed the skills to tackle human problems in a thoughtful and upstream design process. I have had the privilege of working with amazing teams addressing issues from postpartum experiences in the pandemic to the health disparity of diabetes in minority populations of Travis County. Both of these projects had the same outcome of addressing the problem at its root cause instead of down the line when it is experienced. Another strategy that these two projects shared is placing empathy and understanding above all else. These are the practices I aim to bring to my future design projects.
