Hello! Thanks for stopping by.

Teresa, a UX designer & strategist

Bringing warmth, simplicity, and order to ideas that seem too hard to express and too large to grasp is my passion. I'm so grateful for every opportunity and for everyone who has helped me to express my passion through design.

Thank you.

To empathize with those I'm designing for, I use the following research techniques:

  • Card Sorting
  • Expert Reviews
  • Field Studies
  • Focus Groups
  • Interviews
  • Persona Creation
  • Surveys
  • Usability Testing


In order to come up with as many ideas as possible as quickly as possible I like to:

  • Ask a lot of questions.
  • Involve others from various backgrounds.
  • Never dismiss ideas.
  • Leverage research.
  • Use pen and paper, white boards, sticky notes to quickly sketch out ideas.


I'm blessed to have a background in both development and design. I can monitor the success of my design by:

  • Wireframing and user testing
  • Prototyping and user testing
  • Accessibility checking
  • Coding and adding analytics tracking
  • Gathering feedback using surveys and in-person interviews
