I have been designing for 15+ years and currently work in the HRtech space as a UX Lead. I have worked for both large and small companies in technology, transportation, and advertising with significant experience in wellness, rail, and IoT. I have held many roles, including graphic designer, web designer, front end developer, interactive designer, brand/agency creative, visual designer, interaction designer, and product owner.
I am passionate about encouraging young girls to pursue careers in STEM, bridging educational equity gaps for people of color and minorities, and supporting other women leaders and business owners in areas that lack structures to help them succeed.
I approach problems with curiosity. I make informed decisions backed by data. I find and implement effective solutions.
I define and execute UX vision as a relentless advocate for end users, driven to deeply understand them and the problem space.
I foster a creative culture where each member of my team is empowered and enabled to innovate with empathy.

It took us a LONG time to hire a leader for our design team. This was a critical role for us to fill, and we wanted to get it right. With Patricia, we got it right. She immediately made an impact across both product and marketing. She implemented a design system that made us more efficient at delivering higher quality products.

Patricia and I worked on the Moto 360 smartwatch UI and the accompanying Moto Body app. Patricia was responsible for the look and feel of the entire app, and did an excellent job. She has a great attitude, works tirelessly, and creates exceptional interfaces. I would highly recommend Patricia for UI/UX design and for having on your design team in general.
