Teacher and entrepreneur turned product designer

I tend to be very curious and love learning new things, so I’ve had a varied background.

As a teacher for 10 years, I thrived on the critical and creative thinking the job required. I needed to use lots of empathy, listening, and leadership skills. Since young humans are not always very predictable, I often needed to adapt to wildly unique situations, practice lots of patience, and rely on my problem-solving skills to get me through.

After Covid and all the lockdowns, I quit teaching and started a small business selling digital planners. I also opened my first vacation rental. These things required me to use skills like digital product creation, branding, marketing, and copywriting. Communicating well with customers became important, and I had to pay strict attention to detail and do competitive research in order to stand out from the crowd.  

I decided to transition to the field of UX design because I love the way analytical thinking merges with creative thinking.

I’ve always been a big proponent of empathy for people, so creating a product that’s inclusive and fun to use excites me. I’m also never satisfied with surface answers, so digging deep to uncover hidden information and details in UX research also appeals to me.

My background has given me skills that will easily translate into the field of UX design, especially in a start-up or mid-sized corporation.
