Melina believes that user experiences should not only make a user’s life or job easier, but also delight them in such a way that they return to experience it time and time again. Throughout her 12+ year professional career, Melina has worked on a variety of project types, and has developed an organized and proficient process to solving client problems, while satisfying user needs.
She loves a fast-paced design environment, prioritizing tasks and taking on the most challenging of assignments. Ask Melina what makes her a great UX designer and she’ll enlighten you on how she feels that she is only as great as the team she is a part of. She thrives where she is able to collaborate with team members and collectively create comprehensive solutions that exceed client and user expectations.
Additionally, Melina is part “purple unicorn.” She is not only a UX designer but has an extensive background in development as well. Her depth of knowledge in both areas allows Melina to easily and comprehensively create user experiences that both address the user needs but also meet development scope or time constraints.
When Melina isn’t at the office, her loves include hanging with friends and family, watching Marvel movies, reading, travelling, or burning up the dance floor in her salsa classes each week. Oh, and don’t be surprised to see her enjoying a bowl of Cheetos…with a spoon. After all, that’s the only way to eat them – no cheesy fingers!
