Design Principal, UX in Saint Paul, Minnesota
I am a UX Design Principal at 3M, where I focus on translating people’s thoughts and desires, spoken or not, into experiences that improve the healthcare industry. I am responsible for leading a team that creates immersive, emotional experiences for 3M Health Care’s enterprise solutions that seamlessly integrate digital and physical workflows for patients, payers and providers.
With 17 years of experience in the design industry, I have held multiple roles as a designer, entrepreneur, education department chair and team leader. My experiences have taught me that a successful product hinges on one principle, truly understanding the end user. With a proven ability to lead change and process improvements, I have developed strategies and design solutions for diverse organizations ranging from startups to Fortune ranked companies. I am a relentless user experience evangelist, driven by a shared vision and user-centered passion that takes a team, and its products, from good to great.
Aside from my primary role at 3M, I am an adjunct professor for Kent State University’s User Experience Design graduate degree program and often speaks at conferences and events.
