Employment

Regions Bank

I already had nearly four years of experience serving Regions Bank as my client at Intuitive Company when I accepted my current position on the bank's user experience team. My role is to lead a design system team that supports about fifty developers across three different web platforms. Even though I focus on product strategy, I also stay involved in the details of crafting reusable design patterns, perfecting interfaces in CSS, and ensuring that digital experiences are usable and accessible. Other tasks include managing vendor relationships, advocating for the adoption of industry best practices, and fostering a culture of enthusiasm for good design. As a remote employee, I enjoy working from my home office in Cookeville, TN and regularly travel to Birmingham for team meetings.

I also consulted on the re-design of customer bill-pay experiences, defined front-end web development standards for the IT department, and provided design support for developers. In all of my efforts, I focused on delivering scalable, atomic designs that make enterprise-level web development efficient and enjoyable.
