Experience

The Charles Schwab Corporation & OptionsXPress by Charles Schwab

UI Designer ▸ UX Designer ▸ Senior UX Designer

In my time at OX & Schwab, I've worked with partners across internal business groups and outside design and development vendors to design financial products for web and mobile.

I've been a staunch advocate for the user while keeping one eye on business objectives and I've succeeded in designing products that are engaging, user-friendly and cohesive across a wide range of platforms and devices.

I was selected to serve on a quarterly innovation team where I led the design of a new product involving visualization of complex financial trades. I was named as co-inventor on patent application and received the 2014 Innovation MVP Award for my work on this project.
