Originally from Massachusetts, Aislinn (ASH-LIN) has lived in most major cities including Boston, Chicago, New York, and San Francisco to forward her design expertise of digital experiences. She graduated with a Masters from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in Interactive Design and then headed to Silicon Valley to start her professional design career.
As the first product designer at Fitbit, Inc., Aislinn helped grow the design team, developed hardware interactions, and re-designed Fitbit’s web and mobile dashboards. Having worked across unique companies like Google, Yahoo!, Mozilla, and IDEO, Aislinn has been able to draw learnings from each of these environments to develop best practices for bringing design thinking to life.
Aislinn is passionate about using design to better the world and is excited to be leading ThinkCERCA’s design team on such an important mission. Aislinn now lives outside of Boston with her husband, two young children Juniper and Hugo, and two cats, Zuzu and Shebunkin.
