Hello, my name is Vanessa and I am passionate about creating human-centered products and services that enhance quality of life. 

More specifically, I love leveraging user research to generate innovative design solutions that address user pain points, while helping companies shape their larger customer experience and build brand loyalty.
Adept at project management and leading interdisciplinary teams, I offer over 9 years experience producing engaging multimedia products and services, under tight time and budget constraints. Sample projects have included creating a pediatric health website for PBS's "Arthur", developing an early childhood app aimed at low-income caregivers, focus testing a new preschool television series, and conducting exploratory research and play testing for educational digital games for young children. My clients have included PBS, Amazon, History Channel, and Discovery. 
Additionally, I hold a Master of Science in Human Factors from Bentley University, where I was the recipient of the Professor E. William Dandes Award for Graduate Academic Excellence, bestowed upon the graduate student with the highest
GPA across the university's 11 degree programs. 
During the program, I had the privilege of working with a range of corporate
clients, including Google, MathWorks, and WGBH. Projects ranged from
user research and design, to UX strategy development, to usability testing
and heuristic evaluation. Additionally, I conceptualized and prototyped
several original products, including an innovative, new approach to
public transit, and a mobile app designed to help health insurance
subscribers better understand and utilize their plan. 
Currently, I work in the Boston area. I obtained my B.A. from
Wellesley College, where I graduated magna cum laude, Phi Beta
Kappa, with distinction. I was also the recipient of the Pamela Daniels
Fellowship.
Interested in discussing how I can help your company?
