Me stuff

Nice to meet you! I’m Nissa.

I love asking questions, and then doing the hard work of finding the answers—especially when it means I get to design something that solves a problem.

Design and empathy for users has been the cornerstone of career, and the unifying aspect of every role I’ve had. I take a holistic approach to this work, creating systems and processes to meet the needs of the people who interact with them by developing a deep understanding of why, and what people want from them.

Over the years I’ve designed and created online learning experiences for students with disabilities; presented on human-centered design, universal design, and gamification principles for educators; created branding for businesses and organizations; and designed a bunch of websites.

I’m currently finishing up my certification in UX design, hoping to continue to use my design powers for good.
