Hi, I'm Emily. I'm a designer based in Oakland, CA.

At the moment I'm helping folks take control of their financial lives at YNAB. I work on the budgeting experience for the web and our native mobile apps.

In the past I built tools for creating in-app experiences without writing any code at Appcues, worked as design consultant for Fortune 500 companies at Slalom Build, and designed human-guided machine learning tools at Tamr. I have an academic background in cognitive science and human-computer interaction.
