I started this journey into the user experience field back in November of 2018. I had been working as a graphic designer at a church for about a year at that point, and had dreams of expanding my influence and creative expression. I had a bachelor's degree in sociology and knew I needed to gain a working knowledge of the basics, the field itself, and find a way to break in.
Like anyone new to a subject, I researched around the web, watched Lynda videos, read blog posts, etc. After a lot of research, I finally stumbled upon the Springboard program. Eight months later and 350+ hours of being immersed in UX, with a few portfolio projects in my pocket, I was ready.
I've been blessed to call this field home for almost two years and can't wait for new experiences and problems that lie ahead.
I'm currently a UI Designer for CU*Answers, a fintech organization. My team and I build mobile and web solutions for 300+ credit unions serving close to 2 million members. These white-label solutions can then be customized by the credit union using a CMS that we also develop.
My other experience includes:
• Visual Design • Project Management • Consumer Experience • Organizational Leadership
