About

MY BACKGROUND

   With my passion for problem-solving and discovery, I was able to find my career path in user experience design.  I originally received a bachelor’s degree from Georgia State University where I then fell into a career in corporate health and wellness.  After 4 years working my way up the ladder learning and growing along the way, I began to question my next steps in my career.

   I reflected on the aspects I really enjoyed which included interacting with members, creating solutions for both the client and member’s needs, and developing ways to assist the client and members in feeling successful.  After this reflection, I began researching, attending informational meetings, and speaking with individuals in other fields.  Finally after 6 months of research I discovered UX Design.  Still not completely sold on making the jump, I enrolled in the online circuit course offered through General Assembly.  It only took a week before I knew that I was ready to make the leap.  From there, I enrolled in the immersive course.

   Since graduating from the course, I have continued to learn by working with non-profits in the Atlanta area, attending Meetups that cover a variety of design topics, and the evening workshops.
