"My job is to understand human psychology and behaviors and analyze human data, to design a system that is easy to use while keeping in mind the technical restraints of the product to achieve business goals.
- Mary
As a Senior UX designer and Experience Lead, Mary has experience creating UX solutions for most up-and-coming tech. She has worked on AR (Augmented Reality) projects, led mobile and kiosk UX teams, designed an interface for a product that was built specifically for Discount Tire, and much more. She has had the privilege of traveling all over the country for multiple teams to conduct 200+ hours of user interviews, evaluations, and testing.

Mary has experience as a design consultant, creative project director, strategic advisor, and problem solver for multiple products and applications. She assured her teams were aligned with the dev team, the project owners, and the customers to guide them toward impactful design outcomes throughout all her engagements. Throughout her career, she provided leadership in all stages of each engagement, and in between engagement assignments. During the time between projects, she went out of her way to reassure her team that there was no need to worry and that this was the normal cycle of things. She established and maintained the highest quality of execution across all her design work, provided a strong point of view, built strong partnerships with her teams, and fostered collaboration with her customer. (Sometimes so well, that she still talks to a handful of her customers despite no longer working for them.)
