Hello! I'm Jay (Jessie)! 👋

I'm currently an Associate Product Designer at Lively, Inc. helping people make the most of their HSA/FSA healthcare dollars!

My Experience

I graduated in August 2020 from the University of Washington's Industrial Design program. Previously, I interned at Uber as a Product Design Intern and most recently, led design at XBoost creating VR physical therapy solutions for stroke patients!

My Strengths

With a background in Industrial Design, I add to teams my abilities to

  • communicate with sketches, both on paper and digitally

  • storyboard

  • balance feasibility and usability

  • transform research findings into design opportunities

  • collaborate with diverse teams

My Values

My journey transitioning from industrial design to UX and my personal battle with lupus have made me value

  • empathy for users in not just listening to their frustrations, but also acknowledging their feelings

  • open mindedness in welcoming different perspectives

  • diversity and representation for people with chronic illnesses
