Hi! I'm Mel

I'm a product designer who works on the full product design lifecycle. I stay rooted in empathy and customer mental models, and help teams co-create solutions that solve real needs.

Currently, I'm designing digital products at MetaLab – a design agency that helps clients from tiny web startups to Fortune 50 companies build products. Previously, I did design at UCSF Health's Center for Digital Health Innovation,  DroneDeploy and conducted research at Omada Health.

I’ve worked with early-stage startups building their first product to large institutions integrating into hairy ecosystems (cue America’s Healthcare System). This has exposed me to the depth of iterating on a single product to understanding multi-user workflows at scale.

When I'm not designing products, you can find me...

Illustrating, writing, or jamming out with my two-gal rock band, Buffalo Stardust.
