Me in a Nutshell

Growing up, art has always been a part of my life. I have a bachelors in Fine Arts and a minor in Digital Arts from the University of California, Irvine. After graduating, I worked as a graphic designer for six years. Despite the work experiences gained, I’ve always encouraged myself to continue learning and building on my skills. I enrolled myself in a Design Track program with Bloc, where I spent over 800 hours learning best design practices from professionals in the field.

When I’m not designing, you can catch me at Disneyland eating a turkey leg.

My Design Process


I ask a lot of questions, but I’m not trying to be annoying. I want to make sure that I am aligned with your expectations for a project. This stage of the process includes doing market and competitive analysis research.


Who doesn’t like a great foundation? At this stage, I analyze data received from my research to prioritize user stories that would determine the information heirarchy of the project. Here is where the MVP is created.

Visual Design

The best designs are the ones that evoke feelings. I convert wireframes into their final design look. In order to provide the best experience of the product, I create a dynamic prototype that displays the final results before having it sent to development.

What people think of me

She is easy to work with and her communication skills help in identifying challenges early. Christie has exhibited working habits that would benefit any company.

What people think of me

"Christie was my UX/Product design student during her time at Thinkful. I have seen Christie grow to become a talented, confident and proactive designer that uses a process-driven design approach. She is capable to turn abstract concepts into delightful experiences from start to finish whilst keeping the user in mind throughout the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a switched on UX/Product designer.

What people think of me

"Christie is a rare gem! I have had the privilege of working with Christie for the last two years. We frequently work in tandem with each other, as is essential for marketing and design to do. She is a wonderful coworker who brings creativity and positivity to our team. I have seen her grow - becoming our team's lead designer - as key contributor to our development. She is cooperative, have excellent communication skills, and is a pleasure to work with."

What people think of me

"Christie approaches her work with an openness and verve that makes her a joy to work with. During the year we worked together, I relied heavily on her creative direction, precision, and speed to scale marketing operations across online and offline channels. Without Christie's partnership, my team and I would not have been able to achieve our marketing department's aggressive goals. I'm eager to see what she tackles next and hope that one day our paths cross again!"
