Hi, My name is Gabrielle.

I'm a Full-Stack Designer.
I design experiences & develop interfaces that bring users + technology together.

My expertise lies in my passions --- UX Design, Visual Design & Front-End Development.


A Girl With A Dream

Early 2000s

I fell in love with all things web when I was introduced to “the internet". As I was teaching myself HTML, I dreamt of becoming a Disney Imagineer and designing stellar sites for the most magical place on earth, Disney World.

My First Internet Gig


During college, I started my first internship at Sherwin-Williams Corporate Headquarters as a Web Analyst Co-op.

My first Information Architecture project was the redesign of the Employee Benefits section of the Chameleon intranet site. I learned CSS on the job through the redesign and through the development of secure Sher-Link pages.

Soon after my co-op came to an end, I started an internship at Brulant, an interactive marketing agency, as a Search Engine Optiziation Analyst Intern. There is where I wrote SEO copy for Marriott and Nationwide Insurance.


Technical Communications


After a recruiter asked me if I knew how to use a camera and PowerPoint, my career as a Technical Writer began as a fluke at Fluke Biomedical. Pursuing the career path seemed logical I was eventually recruited by Philips Healthcare and Nelson Stud Welding.

I gained valuable UX skills as a Technical Writer - empathy for the users of my products, knowing the right questions to ask, learning to simplify and create visuals for complex concepts.


My Education


I worked full-time throughout my college years as I pursued my Bachelors of Arts in Communications at Cleveland State University (2009) and my Masters of Science, IAKM, User Experience Design, at Kent State University (2014).


Becoming a UX/UI Designer


I moved from Ohio to Northern Virginia after getting my first role as a UX/UI Designer at CACI International.

I have contributed to over 17+ classified projects for our clientele - covering all aspects of design and user experience design - accessibility, interaction & visual design or front-end development.

Making Moves


I believe its time for me to move on. It's time for me to work on a mission contributing towards the greater good.

I want to reach more users than ever before.
