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 Manager: Design & Strategy at UPMC Enterprises. I deeply care about the human experience and the motivations behind why someone uses a product or service, and translate that into the technology we build. I also enjoy advising on Product & Design Strategy at RoadRunner Recycling, and freelance designing at Hustle Fitness. 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.
