Fonnis is currently studying for her Master of Science in Experience Design at Northeastern University. Her background is in Fashion design. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design and Textile from Lasalle College of the Arts and worked as a lingerie and sportswear designer for 5 years. With the epochal shift as economics evolve from a focus on manufactured products to one that favours services and experiences, she wishes to design “verbs” rather than “nouns”. As the presence of human interaction and experience design becomes a game changer, she hopes to use design as a tool to improve the quality of life at every level. Fonnis believes that with every problem comes an opportunity and she aims to be a part of something revolutionary. She loves nature, hiking, traveling and everything exciting.
