About

Howdy! 🌞 My name is Isabel and I’m a full-stack developer with a design background. I have a penchant for design systems, product strategy, and trying my best.

I go by they/them pronouns and I’ve worked for Plated, Postlight, Pippa, and Edelman.

I’ve worked for tiny startups where things move at breakneck speed, and I’ve also led cross-functional teams with 20+ contributors and stakeholders. I’m at my happiest when I’m building software, leading product strategy, and working with an awesome team.

Outside of tech, I’m passionate about diversity and inclusivity initiatives, cooking for others, and making friends on the internet.

Let’s build something together,

Isabel 💛
