I am a service design strategist and change maker. I created Power of Design Services to focus on improving service experiences in higher education. My passion is in finding ways to improve student experiences and to support students' academic successes.
I have worked in Higher Ed for more than 13 years and most recently as the Design Lead for a large and complex Student Information Systems replacement project (SIS) at the University of California, Berkeley. In addition to service design, I have an extensive background in information technology and in a variety of product management, engineering management, marketing and business development roles. Throughout my career, I have been known as a problem solver and for my strong customer advocacy; always striving to remedy poor service experiences.
