Hi, I’m Mia!.png

Thanks for stopping by! I love creating delightful experiences that make life just a little bit easier.

How did I get here?

Since discovering the world of engineering in high school, I became obsessed with the idea of scaling social good via innovation. I was fascinated by the concept of leveraging technology to improve the human experience on a global level. My freshman year at Stanford, I discovered product design through an introductory seminar. I was inspired by an accessibility product created to help amputees rock a kick a$$ prosthetic as opposed to the more "human-like" prosthetics on the market. This sparked a passion for accessibility design.

I began to realize my skill set lent itself more to the digital world, so I took on two UX Design internships during college and was involved in a variety of side projects. I guess I’ve always been about that #sidehustle life. After graduation, I joined the Community Cloud UX Team at Salesforce, where I was promoted in my first six months and was tasked with building out the Community Management/Moderation experience, Community Profiles, and Chatter integration in the new Lightning Desktop experience (a 10 year UI overhaul of Salesforce Classic). I also had the exciting opportunity to create demos for Dreamforce two years in a row and briefly worked with the one and only Neil Young. Fun times. 

At 23, I left a life of stability to pursue the challenge of revitalizing sexual and mental health care through my company, tabú. We all deserve to feel good—mentally, physically, spiritually, and otherwise. I won’t stop until that rings true around the world. I am deeply grateful to have been featured in publications such as Forbes, The New York TimesThe Guardian, and Women of Silicon Valley.

So, want to work together?
