Hello! 👋 I’m Sarah.

Hello! 👋 I’m Sarah.


Since 2012, I’ve had the opportunity to solve a variety of problems for a variety of people, including internet-savvy marketers, casual gamers, data-hungry analysts, to-be homeowners, overworked physicians, and more. Regardless of what people do for a living or during their after-work hours, I’ve learned that most human problems boil down to one core truth: We all want to relieve our suffering.

Whether it’s the stress of reporting on the results of a recently launched marketing campaign or attending to multiple patients with multiple ailments in a day with not nearly enough hours, I believe design has the incredible power to eliminate pain and create space for what's truly important.

To me, this is what designing with compassion means — acting on the intention to identify, understand, and relieve the suffering of others. It requires shifting focus from oneself to others, giving presence by listening, and embracing commonalities despite differences. Most importantly, it requires a genuine desire to help people (including those beyond one's own periphery) live their best lives.

As a designer, I not only believe that design has the power to better our world, but I recognize the opportunity to create meaningful change in the lives of others. It is the reason why I choose to work on products and with companies that purposefully put people—their customers and their teams—first.
