Oh, hey! 👋 Nice to meet you.
I'm a Human Factors Psychologist.
I earned a Master's degree and PhD from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. For my PhD dissertation, I investigated the use of narrative storytelling for training intercultural sensitivity in healthcare.
I'm a business owner and consultant.
I cofounded Kennason LLC in Troy, NY in 2015. We are a User Experience (UX) consulting company, meaning we improve product designs with human-centered research and strategy. We work with startups, universities, and the New York State government. We get our kicks from innovation and social good.
I'm a speaker & volunteer.
I am a coordinator for AlbanyUX, a professional meetup for local UX enthusiasts. I am also the Sponsorship Director for the Upstate New York chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design. I enjoy giving talks and workshops locally and at conferences around the country, sharing things I've learned about Human Factors, UX, and entrepreneurship.
