UX & Product Design

Senior product designer with years of experience designing dynamic digital products. I am passionate about building accessible and inclusive products while keeping an eye on the design process and customer impact. My adaptability, dedication, and problem-solving skills drive me to create user-centered products that also meet business objectives.

In my free time I am studying for my IAAP Certificate with Deque University. I am also a designer with Larunda Accessibility Solutions, an all woman company aiming to create an inclusive web presence through accessibility consultation, design, development, auditing and education.

" Jalena is wonderful. Our team found itself starting a from scratch web design and build right as COVID-19 was ripping through NYC. Our client wasn't able to be as communicative, everyone was dealing with stress and fear at home, and yet this team came together and created a beautiful site that the client loves. Jalena's design was able to capture the spirit of our clients needs even as communication with them stalled. They could not have had more glowing feedback about her. Through it all Jalena kept a positive attitude and got what we needed done. I've recommended her in the past for logo design, and now for web design as well, I'm happy to say "HIRE HER". You won't regret it. "
