hi, i'm natalie.

I am a product and service design leader — a specialist in creating relevant, practical, and humane experiences for the healthcare industry. Originally from the 'burbs of Detroit, I'm now located in the pacific northwest.

Many systems are fundamentally exclusive. I believe the practice of design holds some of the best tools for uncovering the sources of exclusion and provides rigorous frameworks that can facilitate systemic change.

design for change

Much of my free time is spent on discovery or making hobbies; baking, cooking, foraging, reading. Design practice allows me to make a career out of my natural tendency to learn and create.

design to create

I'm inspired by the complexity and creativity of the natural world. The interdependencies and entanglements found there can be used to inform how I can approach the human built one.
