philosophy

With a background in graphic design, service design, and public engagement, I bring a unique skillset and perspective to my current place of work, RATIO Architects, and to my community. My expertise in user-centric design thinking empowers the firm and outside organizations to make informed decisions that focus on the holistic user experience of clients.

I believe by better understanding and empathizing with a client's needs at the very beginning of the process will only create a successful final deliverable at the end.

Health Matters

Garden on the Go, a signature obesity prevention effort, is Indiana University Health's year round mobile produce delivery program, providing fresh, affordable produce to Indianapolis neighborhoods in need. As the mobile nature of the service is well aligned with context based approaches in Service Design, the design researchers perceived potentials to reconfigure the Garden on the Go service as well as to reframe a health care service model from institution to people based. See our published article about this project in Service Design Networks magazine, Touchpoint, below.

PPASS

The Indiana State Department of Health's (ISDH) Maternal and Child Health Division (MCH) developed the Pregnant and Parenting Adolescent Support Systems (PPASS) program. The goals of the PPASS program included: strengthening infrastructure for pregnant and parenting teens in Marion County; reducing subsequent pregnancies; and decreasing high school drop-out rates. The ISDH collaborated with a team from Herron School of Art + Design and Attic Design Collective to implement a new method of communication between the ISDH and pregnant and parenting adolescents.

Ruckle Street pocket park

In 2012, MFCDC started the process of building three pocket parks in their neighborhood on the Near-Northside of Indianapolis. Critical to the success of this undertaking was first understanding the neighborhood’s needs and wants. We began the process with a community conversation, where all residents in the park’s vicinity were invited to discuss what they envisioned for the space. In order to “tap” into their childhood selves, we created a kid-like environment to explore and imagine all of the possibilities. By doing so, we created a judgement-free zone where everyone could express their ideas and fully engage in the moment.
