Nice to meet you! I'm Sara.

I’m an experienced senior product designer committed to research-based decisions, accessibility, and innovative product thinking. 

I’m passionate about creating simple, user-centric solutions for complex problems.

My Values

This collection of values is my guide to ensuring I’m constantly evolving as both a designer and a human being

Always ask “why?”

Maintaining a sense of curiosity is crucial. When you keep asking “why?” it helps you really get into the heart of a problem, finding new paths you might not have thought of otherwise.

Define the problem first

Making sure you’ve got the problem nailed down is just as crucial as finding the solution in any project. If you define the problem right, you’re setting yourself up for success when it comes to creating products that really work.

Never stop growing

Growth happens when you take risks, ask questions, and get out of your comfort zone. Every day is a new opportunity to learn and grow.

A Bit About Me...

I was raised in the suburbs of St. Louis and am now enjoying living along the beaches of Israel. I am passionate about utilizing my empathy for others to create user-centered designs, ensuring that my designs are immersive, efficient, and pleasing for each and every user.

As a former job coach working with adults with disabilities in finding and maintaining meaningful employment, I solved real-world problems while balancing varied priorities on a daily basis. From actively listening to my clients and their employers in order to identify concerns, to collaborating with them in order to craft and fine-tune creative solutions, I am well-equipped to use the rich data I gain from empathizing with users to create and perfect real solutions that address real problems.

I have firsthand appreciation for how powerful intuitive design can be in changing others’ lives, as I frequently utilized apps and technology to support my clients in becoming as independent as possible. I am thrilled to be on the other end of that technology, ensuring that my users can experience that same seamless and intuitive experience.

When I’m not designing, I’m exploring Netanya’s parks with my family, finding ways to recreate my favorite Starbucks lattes, or browsing Pinterest for my next home-improvement project.
