Ready to learn more about her? Here is her response to some of our website designer profile questions!


Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Aitkin, MN

How did where you grew up mold your aesthetic/perspective?

I think living in such a small town made me look for something bigger. I always had a love for art, but I didn’t really develop my taste or aesthetic until I moved to Chicago for college. There I went to school for Fashion Design, but close to graduation, I realized I enjoyed layout and design more than construction.

What do you think makes an excellent website?

Personality. I feel like anyone can learn the basics or fundamentals, but I enjoy websites where that designer’s unique style shows.

What are some of your favorite types of websites to design?

I really enjoy doing the author’s websites or anything I get to be a bit creative with. In college, I designed a mock site for a record store and had a lot of fun with interactions and typography.

What do you think are the most important aspects of a quality website design?

The most important aspects of a quality site are useability and accessibility. Making a site that is straightforward and easy for users, I think, is the goal for any web designer.
