About me

I have over 9 years of experience in the software industry and 15 years of experience as a designer. Driving innovation by integrating human-centered design, cultivating talented design teams, and establishing and ensuring products that are easy to use, aesthetically pleasing, and aligned with business goals.

As a proud computer nerd, in 2003 I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Processing. In 2005 I graduated in Graphic Design and in 2012 I graduated in Industrial Design.

I have extensive experience partnering with cross-functional product and tech leaders from discovery to launch, designing for enterprise SaaS, B2B, B2C, and B2G products, in industries such as Food and beverage, Fashion, Real Estate, Wellness, Government, Pharmaceutical and Medical cosmetology.

After having worked for agencies, startups and technology companies, I have acquired the ability to adapt to different contexts and handle tight deadlines, being able to zoom in and out, put my hands on the craft, or delegate work.

I'm very interested in volunteering, especially in being part of causes that promote gender equality. 🌈

Working in a male-dominated field and experiencing the challenges of being a woman in technology, encouraged me to found a women in tech community.

Outside of work, I like to play video games, travel, and make creamy cappuccinos.

product design, design with a vision of the future, for products that grow and develop in a visual and interactive


Process oriented

The practice of design that revolves

around processes. Processes as

influencers of results and team work.

Processes as valuable tools that directly impact the quality of the design.

Designer’s intuition

The intuition of the designer is a key player in design decisions. Intuition is a valuable asset brought by experience and a factor that plays together with data.
