VP, Product Development
Davina thrives on solving problems and finding creative, elegant ways to present complex information. With a background in engineering, technical communication, and fine art, she’s driven to discover the place where value, usability, and feasibility intersect. She excels in clarifying business requirements, stoking the fires of cross-functional teams, and leveraging lean methodologies to roll out successful products on time, regardless of constraints.
In 1998 Davina founded designwrench information arts, an agency that provided print, identity, and web design and development to businesses and non-profits for over 15 years. In 2014, she joined forces with integrated design and development consultancy Cloud City as their Director of User Experience. While there, she played a key role in building content management systems and marketing websites for the Public Library of Science (PLOS), boosting the power and impact of Open Access scientific publishing.
When she’s not geeking out on process, Davina creates paintings, tapestries, sculptures, and installations inspired by her love of physics, nature, community, and connection.
