About Sarah

My passion in design revolves around problem solving. My favorite part of a new project is initial meeting where we gather all project stakeholders and talk with them about their needs/wants/desires. This starts the process of figuring out how to fit all those pieces together. 

Working with stakeholders through a products pain points, we discover new and innovative solutions. I work closely with product owners, copy, and engineering to help drive the teams roadmap in the direction of success. We want to have clear "Why", which can be written out as user problems, or business goals. A clear goal gives us a backbone to support all our future decisions. From here we can user test our fundamental ideas, create user flows & stories, wireframe design solutions, and work towards final iteration.
