I initially crossed paths with Danielle
through her work in the NYC UXPA as a community builder and thought leader, and I knew right away that I wanted her to join my team. Her passion for user representation, empathy, and accessibility was clear from our very first conversation and she exceeded these expectations in her role as a UX researcher and designer. Danielle was an excellent teammate and brought a great energy to our office day-in and day-out. She eagerly engaged in brainstorming sessions, research activities, and design feedback and contributed to valuable user insights and successful project outcomes. My greatest form of praise is to say that I look forward to an opportunity to work with Danielle again in the future, and I know that any UX team would be lucky to have her.
HEAD OF UX & CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE,
Danielle demonstrates a natural ability for uncovering user insights to inform design recommendations. She also shows an ability to clearly communicate her design decisions through annotated wireframes and presentations. The genuine curiosity and level of detail she brings to her work helps drive her and her fellow team members.

MANAGER OF USER EXPERIENCE,
Danielle's dedication to a piece is inspiring even to an old artist like me. Lead us!

Danielle was a valuable asset on a team
of UX Researchers and Designers.
She's a great listener and researcher, making sure the website would perform well with different audiences. I participated in my first-ever design studio alongside Danielle, who made the experience a fun, learning experience. It allowed me to see her eye for design, and her teamwork and collaboration skills. Working with her was such a smooth, positive experience, and her contribution to our website redesign led to immediate impact.
