About Denise

I'm passionate about creating delightful and functional experiences that are accessible to anyone. As someone can design and code, I thrive in a collaborative environment where I can bridge the gap between design and development.

I approach all my work with empathy and compassion for end users, open communication and a collaborative mindset towards my team, and ownership and accountability for delivering successful solutions.

I'm always open to learning about new opportunities to grow.
