👋 hi! my name is rena.
i am currently a senior product designer at 15five working on user experiences for better employee engagement & helping people become their best selves -- specifically working on reporting dashboards and visualizing data in meaningful and positive ways. previously, i was a senior designer at cloudbees & statmuse. i was also once a product manager at barkbox & citibank, & a graduate of MIT.
i am an end to end designer who believes that designers should be empathetic, collaborative, and have a constant desire to learn new things. i am also passionate about empowering people through design and crafting enjoyable user experiences for all people. in the past, i have lead complete design processes from user research to high-fidelity designs to product delivery.
in my free time, i love traveling, learning about everything & anything, soaking up nature, and obsessing over my 🐱, tony montana.
