Hi, I'm Jen.

I’m the Head of Design & Research at Modern Health, a company changing the way the world receives mental health care. I love storytelling, the process of solving complex problems and helping UXers traverse their career. I bring a range of visual, interaction and systems design experience from over 15 years designing at companies such as Google, Amazon, Twitter and New York Magazine.

I'm passionate about diversity, equity and inclusion in tech and partner with organizations who create meaningful change. I sit on the board of directors at Inneract Project, a non-profit whose mission is to empower the next generation of black and brown designers and I serve as a mentor with Made in the Future, a fellowship for underrepresented emerging design professionals. I've written about how There's No Magic Pill to meaningfully change the lack of representation—only hard work.

I've been fortunate to speak about my work at conferences, including Frontiers, IxDA and Tapia Conference on Diversity in Computing. I've also been interviewed on the UI Narrative podcast about being a multimodal designer and for the documentary film Design Disruptors about responsive design.

In my free time, I make a porcelain ceramics line and teach wheel throwing at Clayroom SF. I've participated in gallery shows at the Lyons Wier Gallery and Choplet Gallery in New York City, and my functional work has been featured on sites like Refinery29 and Made and State.

Find me on Twitter, Dribbble or LinkedIn. I'd love to connect.
