What do you hope to gain from Design Thinking?

I look forward to meeting creative individuals in different fields and having great conversation. I am excited about using anthropology, ethnography, and design thinking to help non-profits and other organizations who could use a creative, helping hand, or who would not look to these disciplines to solve problems and find opportunities. I believe we can make the world a better place by sharing what we know!

What skills, talents, or experiences would you like to contribute?

I'm an anthropologist/archaeologist who used to be a ballet dancer...if that's not weird enough, I've also been in sales, marketing, museums, and venture capital. Sharing with my fellow thinkers & doers will be great, and sharing or volunteering with other organizations will be a blast!

We do volunteer projects. What non-profits, organizations, or small businesses would you like to help?

Museums have a special place in my heart and I would like to help big ones and smaller, neighborhood ones. I think it would be a great experience to reach out to local and small businesses or organizations as well.


Hello! I can't wait to meet fellow Design Thinkers & Doers and have tons of fun!
