👋  Hi, I'm Brenna. 

I'm currently a user experience designer leading provider of online text books and course materials, in Raleigh, North Carolina. I'm also teaching Public Speaking to college freshmen on my lunch breaks.

I'm a multidisciplinary designer that advocates for functional and visually engaging experiences. I have worked in many capacities as a designer, as an American ambassador in international government offices, in software and agile environments, in marketing agencies, as well as consulting small businesses and non-profits.

During the last 8 years, I've visited over 30 countries while working as a designer; seeking a more in-depth understanding of global users as humans, not just device carriers. I've served in the Peace Corps twice, for almost 3 years in Bajram Curri Albania, and most recently in Port Vila, Vanuatu.
