Hello. Product Designer and Graphic Artist with a BFA in design. I have a passion for usability design and an interest in front end development. I produce creative solutions to visual problems by harnessing my innate curious nature, asking questions, being proactive about finding answers, and continuously learning industry standards. 
    I am a full-time employee as a UX Designer for BJ's Wholesale Club, focused on the ‘Membership Service’ experience. I love the work my role entails. The BJ’s business model puts me in a unique position for several reasons.
First of all, I find it fulfilling that ‘bulk shopping’ not only has economic benefits for members, but it also beneficial to the environment.
Secondly, since BJ’s is a ‘membership only’ platform, I have the unique opportunity to focus on the UX Design for ‘Membership Services’. I find it rewarding that my efforts are to advocate as well as translate Membership feedback to enhance their digital and physical experience within the club.
It is a unique time to be a BJ’s UX Designer. The UX team is new, and together we encompassing a broad scope of skills and experience. This past year BJ’s has had an enormous push from stake holders to implement new technological improvements, that ultimately impact the measure of BJ’s financial performance. Since I’ve been employed, I’ve witnessed BJ’s ring the bell on Wall Street, initiating their enlistment in NYSE stock market as well as reaching their benchmark for 1 Million mobile app downloads within the same year as launch. In this fast paced environment I am quickly gaining the essential experience I need to continue my career as a product designer.
