Hi! I'm Nikita, a product designer from Vancouver, BC. My purpose as a designer is driven by designing for scale and impact, empowering communities, and uplifting those around me.

Most recently, I was designing the Search and Browse consumer experience at Wish, and leading vision work to reimagine the future of e-commerce. Prior to that, I was a UX design intern at Edenspiekermann, where I worked with a range of clients in transportation, finance, and nonprofit spaces.

My path to design

Previously a registered nurse, my journey into the field of design stemmed out of curiosity for how healthcare systems could be more efficient in delivering care to patients. This curiosity led me to participating in local healthcare hackathons and startup weekends.

Through these events, I found my once nebulous interests, slowly materialize into a career in product design - the perfect balance of research, strategy, and creativity. Design became a way for me to explore unseen challenges and deliver through meaningful touchpoints - whatever the medium.
