I'm a UX designer with Amazon AWS IoT team, designing services to help makers build a smarter and connected future. Previously I worked on smart home kitchen appliances, next-generation vehicle cockpits & infotainment systems for automotive vehicles, and enterprise GIS software.
I love thinking about new technology and how we can bring a taste of the future now. If the design rules feel like the wild west because of the lack of established patterns and expectations, then I'm your person.

Two things that drive me are honing my skills and sense of community. That’s why I’m always looking for opportunities to grow and give back.

Since 2014, I have been an active volunteer for SIGGRAPH, the premier international conference for computer graphics and interactive techniques.
Currently I’m serving as 2023 Chair of the Student Volunteer Program, overseeing 170+ students volunteering with the conference.
Along with mentoring other designers at work, I have weekly office hours through ADPList to help folks reach their career goals.
I get it, it's the internet. Here are what some real folks kindly said.
“Meaghan is a compassionate and organized leader...Receiving her trust and seeing the work she was completing motivated me to finish tasks on time....If Meaghan joins your team, know that you’ve hired a leader who does the work of a player and strives for clarity and coordination between team members.”
UI/UX Designer, SIGGRAPH
"Not only did she have to work on the detailed user flows, screen designs, and usability testing, but she also had to develop new processes, roles, and systems during our transformation into a more digital, agile organization. This was analogous to building the plane as she was flying. To achieve this Meaghan also showed her emotional intelligence skills to rally a multidisciplinary team around a common goal."
Head of Industrial & UI/UX Design, BSH
“Meaghan’s willingness to learn and embrace new challenges is a much sought after quality... she demonstrated consistent drive and positivity, setting a great example for those around her. Always dutiful in defending and furthering the team’s user centered agenda, I enjoyed her commitment to both her work and her team.”
Group Product Design Manager, Esri
"She is a dedicated and talented team member who is always driving to make projects the best they can be. She takes on new challenges with enthusiasm, learns quickly, and delivers results. Meaghan is easy to work with as she takes and gives feedback very well, which allows her to grow quickly and strengthens her team."
