Streamline the Shine 

Customer Experience and Category Innovation 

Hilton Hotels

Identifying cleanliness as a point of leverage in the guest journey within the Focused and Suite category, Hilton's CE&I team wanted to not only match guest expectations, but

re-shape housekeeping as we know it. Learning that guests want flexibility and choice for their room services, we launched the housekeeping MVP to about 700 hotels through two on-property tests.

As the experience design lead on this initiative, I conducted user research, managed qualitative feedback for both tests, partnered with firms to design hotel-level and above

property-level collateral, and grounded each test in insights and learnings. Keeping the larger "big mama" vision in mind, I managed and conducted preliminary research for upcoming launches. 

Homes & Villas by Marriott International  

Customer Experience and Business Innovation 

Marriott International

As one of the world’s largest and most trusted brands, Marriott has entered in the home sharing industry! My team had the opportunity to lead, imagine, design, and implement this adventure which began as a pilot, in 200 London homes through the launch of Tribute Portfolio Homes, and expanded to what is now Marriott’s first home sharing platform Homes & Villas by Marriott International.

I had the pleasure of designing the end-to-end guest experience of the pilot. This gave me the opportunity to conduct guest research, create product and service experiences and work with our operational partners in order to ensure seamless delivery on a high-quality experience.

All-Inclusive Platform 

Customer Experience and Brand Innovation

Marriott International

Guests have said that they would like premium and luxury, worry-free vacations and Marriott International has responded by launching an all-inclusive platform. By leveraging its renowned brands, there are 5 brands with new all-inclusive resorts in the pipeline in the Caribbean and Latin America.

As one of the two service designers on the core team, I had the incredible opportunity to work on the entire initiative - from strategy and positioning to research and concepting guest experiences to working with development teams to create an implementable roadshow. Working hand-in-hand with our brand leaders and partners, we were able to not only create un-paralleled experiences but also ensure that each distinct brand voice was shining through in every detail at a new and larger scale.
