ABOUT ARIKA

I'm a digital strategist, design technologist and an aspiring social enterprise powerhouse. As a native of the Washington, D.C. area, I have more than 12 years of combined expertise in communications, marketing, branding, customer experience, search engine optimization and user experience design for a range of industries, including small businesses. In 2021, I received my "big break into tech" as a UX Service Designer at GoDaddy, where I design end-to-end Do-It-For-You (DIFY) experiences for everyday entrepreneurs.

I'm a proud HBCU graduate of the illustrious Clark Atlanta University, and I hold a collection of professional certificates in storytelling, UX, and digital marketing (to name a few!). In my spare time, you can find me traveling the world (when it opens again), being a STEM advocate, mentoring, or reading up on the latest tech trends.


Currently, I'm a digital nomad based out of Northern Virginia.
