Audrey is the Head of Design at Lyft where she leads a cross-disciplinary team to craft the end-to-end experiences for all users across Lyft’s digital and hardware products. As a design leader, Audrey has experience building and scaling design teams from the ground up, pivoting design and product strategies to deliver more value for users, helping teams and Fortune 100 companies create transformational experiences.
Prior to Lyft, Audrey was also Head of Design at Thumbtack and was a Managing Creative Director at SYPartners, where she led the design of SYP’s self-branded product business, designed SYP's very first consumer digital product, Unstuck, and crafted products and strategies for clients such as Oprah, Kiva, and Starbucks. Audrey has taught at CCA and Art Center College of Design.
When she isn’t busy working on products and building teams, she’s being a mom, making things, and often outdoors.
As a design leader, you will experience many highs and lows. Audrey joins us for a timely conversation about the human-centered approach she has learned to take with one of the lowest moments for any leader—having to lead an organization through a layoff.
