Some things to know about me

Growth mindset. 

I started off my career in Visual Design and found myself increasingly interested in UX/UI Design. With over 20 years of experience, I have a keen eye for detail and am a problem-solver. I have always taken a user-centered approach in my design work. So, UX/UI Design was the natural progression into the next phase of my career.


I immersed myself in learning about user-centered design principles, conducting user research, defining problems, revealing challenges and finding solutions. This opened up a whole new world filled with endless possibilities to create meaningful experiences for users.

Totally certifiable.

I mean, certified. My certifications include:

I heart UX/UI. 

While it wasn't possible for me to jump right into being UX/UI Designer, I worked at an advertising agency. (Kids, bills, life... you get it.) I worked on a wide array of website projects and collaborated closely with cross-functional teams, including UX/UI specialists, developers, strategy and branding experts, content gurus, SEO analysts and stakeholders. Working for the agency enhanced my skillset and reinforced my love of UX/UI Design.

Teamwork makes the dreamwork.

I love being on a team! Whether I'm collaborating with a design team, an internal team or an external team, you're on my team.

Not a jerk. 

Seriously. It's not that hard, right? Being mindful that we are all human and communicating effectively is how I roll.

Brand conscious + design focused.

I was brand conscious by the time I was 10 and it started with one commercial for Gatorade. Ivan Lendl, one of the greatest tennis players of all time, was on a tennis court gulping down a glistening bottle of lemon-lime Gatorade. After seeing the commercial I begged my mom to sign me up for tennis lessons (and buy me Gatorade).


I kind of sucked at tennis, but I felt confident because I had a Prince racquet and was dressed head to toe in Nike. (You saw that coming, right?) My mom couldn't understand my fixation with certain brands of clothing. ("It's just a *@#!! label!”) To me, it was obvious... it was how the brand made me feel.

Things people have said

Carey is a talented designer, and employs her knowledge of UX/UI to any project that she does, beyond websites. She's always asking "how is the user going to interact with this product / website?", "how should that impact it's design?" She pushes others to think this way as well. She gets the job done even under pressure, and consistently sees the bigger picture. She's a valuable addition to any design team.
