Hello! I’m Meghan, and I’m a user experience designer / project manager.

I draw on my background in user experience & project management to bring new perspectives to the intersection of education and technology. A solution architect at heart and natural empath with INTJ tendencies, I love to problem-solve and strategize.

Firm believer that building positive experiences for others = positive life outlook.

Testimonials

Meghan and I worked closely together on the UXPA-MN board. As Programming Coordinator, Meghan went beyond her designated duties to organize and promote events for the Mentorship Program. No matter the task at hand, Meghan pulled it off with a quick turnaround and quality results.

During her three years on the board, Meghan directly contributed to creating meaningful events and educational opportunities for the Twin Cities’ UX community. She is an intelligent, reliable, and productive collaborator. I hope to have the opportunity to partner with her in the future.

Kristin Sewell, Lead UX Designer (Research) at 3M

Meghan oversaw our New Student Orientation Redesign. This was a new venture for the university and she really lead the entire team from concept through to completion. I relied on her to communicate the vision to a team that had no sense of the concept, and help manage numerous stakeholders through the process. She kept the team or more than 12 organized, informed, and clearly communicated expectations. Because of Meghan, we launched the new student orientation ahead of time and on budget.
