Notability

Before joining Cisco I worked with Ginger Labs for 7 years. First providing the user experience for an iPhone application called SoundAMP which has since transformed into a highly rated note-taking app for the iPad called Notability. I was the design lead throughout my time there.

Cisco DNA Center

For the past four and a half years I’ve been at Cisco working on their latest envisioning of a network controller. It has been an eye-opening experience to go from a startup to a large corporation. I’ve had the opportunity to work with a really great group of people who have inspired me every day to be the best user experience advocate I can be.

Early on I helped migrate the design systems designs into usable components by working closely with the front end engineers on the platform engineering team, I worked on a team with 3 other designers and helped design the and provide redlines to create the initial set of web components for the engineering teams across the organization to use to accelerate front end development and maintain consistency across the applications running on the controller. I also drove weekly team design reviews and worked hard to provide constructive feedback to the team while doing so, these review meetings helped everyone understand what other people were doing and the relationships between the various projects.

Topology

I spent several months with our Architect developing a view of the network which shows its entirety without overwhelming
the users.

Cisco DNA Center is like any other computer system, and the users need a view into what is going on in order to troubleshoot issues as they arise.

Software Management

Streamlined the updating process of both the system and applications on the controller, creating a one-click update process.
