Hey, I'm Gillian! I'm a Toronto based product designer and a graduate from York University / Sheridan College Design Program (YSDN). I love tackling complex problems by asking questions and investigating further through research. 

I believe in the importance of balancing business goals while building seamless product experiences that are driven by customer research and a human-centered design process. 

When I'm not designing, I enjoy attending community meetups, travelling, practicing yoga, and taking online courses.
