Teri leads design strategy and product design at the Portland EY Design Studio. Originally from Philadelphia, Teri was a fine arts major who discovered user experience design soon after graduation. She quickly fell in love with the process of making useful products that enabled people to achieve their goals and she remains fascinated by the interplay of the digital and physical experience. As her career progressed, she also became passionate about mentoring and growing the careers of others. Teri’s vertical experience includes health care, financial services, entertainment and e-commerce. She held design leadership roles with design agencies and internal design teams prior to joining EY Design Studio. Outside of work, she enjoys comedy shows (she’s seen 50+), checking out new restaurants, exploring Portland and spending time with her husband and 2-year-old son.
