From driving user engagement for a Fortune 500 insurance site, to spearheading the B2B MVP product for an IoT startup, I believe the best products lie in understanding the underlying human needs. Having lived in China, the UK, and the US in the past 20 years, I’ve developed a unique strength in empathizing and forming emotional connections with people from diverse backgrounds. Through listening to their stories, I've gained a deeper understanding and empathy for those around me. As a designer, I want to use my creative juice to tell their stories, to give a voice to those who might not have one otherwise.
To know me better, here's a sneak peek of what working with me feels like:
💡 Embarking on a deeply empathetic journey—I love taking the time to understand the mental models of my users
💡 Challenge, challenge, challenge!—I ask thought-provoking questions to uncover the root causes of problems, I was actually titled "Wendy the Challenger" by my designer friends:)
💡 Experiencing craftsmanship at its finest—I am a detail-devil, upholding high-quality craftsmanship at all time
💡 Having a buddy to bounce off ideas and engaging in heartfelt conversations about the best design out there, or anything...
Hey there, it's Wendy:) I'm a product designer who recently graduated with a Master's in Human-Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University. My superpower lies in visual craftsmanship while skillfully questioning to embrace thorny challenges and ambiguity in an agile environment.

When I'm not using Figma, I'm probably using my camera:)
Not to brag, but I did code a responsive website↗ to host my photography, check it out!
