Heatherlee is a..
Human-Centered Design Coach
UX/UI, Product Lead
Art Mom + Community Maker
I partner with product teams interested in using human-centered design to solve unique problems, expand business and innovate. Contact me for exploratory research, to learn, embody and practice user-centered design methods. I’m a highly skilled UX Designer providing workshop facilitation, visual UI design, prototyping, usability testing, and user engagement. Contact me for work samples.
I’m grateful for 13 years of experiences living and working in the Twin Cities. I’m a mom on many missions, committed to fostering equality and inclusion in every facet of our work together.
I hope you’ll join me in elevating the voices and skills of our black and brown partners. And in creating paths for our young people into design and tech. We are far from where we need to be as a society and the change starts with us. Let’s talk about how to do better together.
What can we build together? How can we unite forces to be the change we want to see in the world?

Impactful! ..that best describes Heatherlee’s work. Tasked with providing expert User Experience work on a technically and clinically complex suite of Web-based and mobile software, Heatherlee delivered. She is able to quickly understand complex workflows, distill them to core essentials, and then translate that into effective design appropriate for each audience – no small task. Heatherlee is also comfortable “at the table” with senior technical and clinical leadership in our organization, asks all the right questions, challenges everyone to think from the end-users’ perspective, and quickly spots ill-conceived design specifications.Former Manager + CTO, UnitedHealthcare (Team MD)
