​Hey there, I'm Alyssa! I am a mission-driven UX designer and researcher.

I started out in physical product design, earning a Master's from Stanford and Bachelor's from MIT in mechanical engineering. I transitioned into UX in order to deeply understand and advocate for the people I am serving.

I specialize in bringing new ideas to life — balancing business and user needs while meticulously defining what to build and why. My experience includes:

  • Mixed-methods research to upgrade employee workflows at the City of Philadelphia and Stanford
  • Service design of new systems to modernize food access and supportive interim housing facilities
  • Digital product design for web-based features at Onshape, a software startup

Outside of work, you can find me dancing, coaching design teams, reading for book club, or baking celebratory cakes! Feel free to check out my resume or email me if you'd like to chat :)
