Hi, I'm Krista and I believe design impacts every moment we live. Yes, I code, and I design.

I'm passionate about building human centered products as Product Designer at UPMC Enterprises. I deeply care about the human experience and the motivations behind why someone uses a product or service, and then translate that into how to meet and surpass the user's expectations through what we build. In my free time, I also freelance consult with startups such as SignEasy and PregBuddy on everything UX. I am a proud alum from Penn State's College of IST: Product Design and Development, finishing at the top of my class as Student Marshal.
