Insights

Chicago Headquarters

I am an endlessly curious Senior Consultant specializing in insights and design strategy at Doblin in Chicago. I see myself as an advocate for the human voice–privileged to have the opportunity to learn from other’s experiences and shape something new as a result. I work across a range of industries at Doblin including energy, health care, and consumer products, enjoying each for the unique people I get to spend time with and the learning it brings.

My work experience is founded in entrepreneurship and business, and now with my ethnographic research, prototyping, and strategic design toolobox, I co-create with clients to design sustainable solutions– acting as the bridge between human and business value.

When I’m not working I love gathering people around my table for a meal, cycling along Lake Michigan, and striking up conversation with strangers.

Education
