Hi, I'm Sandra!

I'm a UX designer and researcher based in Vancouver, BC. I love being able to work on projects that are socially, educationally, and or culturally responsible.

Previously, I've worked for Government of BC and Health Design Lab.

I'm in my final year of completing my BDes degree in Interaction Design at Emily Carr University and am currently looking for opportunities in UX design field.
