Hi, I’m Amy. I am a UI/UX designer, leader, innovator, creative problem solver, and a stick figure enthusiast. I’ve taken an unusual career path having spent most of my time in the semiconductor industry where I was in SoC Research & Development and Innovation Leadership. But my accomplishments are all rooted in the idea of design thinking.
The process of discovery and constant consideration of the audience has driven the success of every project I’ve lead for years. Developing things people really want makes what I do extra satisfying. This process included a lot of listening, and it never hurt to clarify the story with the help of a few stick figures.
As a solutions development and innovation leader for Motorola and its successors, I delivered results that improved cycle time, reduced defects to near zero, increased employee retention and increased patent submissions to reach 2x goal. One of my favorite parts of my job was the opportunity to implement ideas that increased moral, such as implementing a Pi Day celebration that included throwing paper airplanes off the 3rd floor balcony, creating a Maker Lab for all employees, and creating a fun film about quality. That’s just a short list.
You know you love what you do when you can’t wait to do and learn more and more. I look forward to it every day. A new opportunity to learn, create, inspire others, and empower ideas is my favorite thing. It’s a joy applying my skills to making solutions that resonate with audiences.
I’d love to hear from you. Connect with me on social media.
