A Biography, Short and Sweet

"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken."
- Oscar Wilde
Chapter: I’m Amanda, a Multidisciplinary Product Designer
I’m a fourth year Computer Science student at the University of Waterloo. Currently, I'm driving product strategy and design at Deloitte Digital. Outside of work, I'm designing and developing products for social good at UW Blueprint. Previously, I designed for cybersecurity at Arctic Wolf and for worker safety at the WSIB Innovation Lab. Additionally, I created impact as a Product Manager/UX Designer at Tecsys and as an Application Developer at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC).

I’ve always believed there was something inherently human about tech and that’s what I intend to explore. Combining my passion for psychology, history and development, I hope to create inclusive products that will impact the lives of others.

Apart from design, catch me rock climbing, snowboarding and finding the latest mountains to hike. When I’m not being adventurous, I can be found reading a book or binging my favourite shows on Netflix. Learn more about my literary and literal adventures here.
