Director of Product & UX


I was the Head of Product & UX for Havenly, a rapidly growing interior design startup in Denver. After closing down, Truthly, I started looking for something full time that fulfilled my main requirements:

1. The company had to have a product that I loved and believed in
2. I wanted to drive vision for the product, not just push pixels
3. The team had to be whip smart rockstars, and a place where I could learn and grow
4. The company had to be in a blue ocean market and have rocketship potential

Havenly checked all of these boxes and more. On a day-to-day, I managed the product development cycle, working closely with the dev team to set priority and execute on company goals especially for our large product launch in August. As the only designer on the team, I drove design vision, created wireframes and mockups, sourced external design talent, and operated our UX testing. I conceptualized many key elements of the product, and redesigned much of the consumer application in a matter of months.
