One of the many great things about the UX community is how many different ways people have found their way into this field. Everyone has a great story that, I believe, shapes who they are as a practitioner.
Before my transition into User Experience Design, I earned an undergraduate degree in art and art history followed by a masters degree in education. I then worked for 5 years as an Art Teacher. As a teacher, I became practiced in understanding implicit and explicit user needs and strategizing ways to meet their needs, something that I believe makes me a strong UX designer.
Today, I feel incredibly lucky to have found a place where I get to bring together my love for art and design, technology, and how people learn into my practice as a UX/UI Designer at Foundry.
When I am not UXing at Foundry I love to be making something or outside camping!
