Hey, i'm Vanessa

A Visionary Product Designer, a User Empathy Advocate, and a Digital Storyteller.

As a problem-oriented product designer, I prioritize delivering high-quality designs by asking insightful questions and understanding clients' needs thoroughly. I build meaningful connections with people to solve their problems.

I’m the sole product designer for TheLeanSuite, a web solution geared towards making lean manufacturing processes effortless. With a degree in Psychology at the University of Waterloo, I’ve created humanistic digital experiences and materials being a marketing consultant for Sotheby’s International Realty, and as the sole product designer for the PickEasy mobile app and online menu builder.

I’m constantly growing my skillsets and I’m passionate towards learning about new things. Outside of work I enjoy photography, going to the nursery to look for plants, going to the gym and golfing.
