Empath & ENFP personality type
With a background in anthropology and policy, I've always had a passion for people.
Upon gaining a couple of years experience as a business analyst, this passion developed into one for technology as well. I was able to discover the realm of human-centered design as I worked with stakeholders to communicate these design ideas to allow for business and user best practices.
I've always been a creative at heart and was naturally drawn towards the UX side of things in the workplace. I often jumped at opportunities to partake in the design of our product, and immediately knew this was my calling. In order to fully pursue my dreams as a product designer, I ultimately made the difficult decision to leave my job mid-pandemic. I have not looked back since, and have been able to build on my UX foundations and apply my prior knowledge and experience to these new skills that I have gained.
I enjoy running and staying active. My friends joke that I go on vacation to exercise as you'll often find me hiking or exploring new running locations.
I also really enjoy reading. You can find me leaning towards books that delve into the psychology of the mind or how humans and society have evolved over time. (I guess you can see why I enjoy UX so much!)
I look forward to meeting you!
