My User Journey

I spent a decade as a wildlife biologist researching threatened and endangered species. I went into conservation biology because I wanted to make a difference, and science seemed to be an ideal fit for my natural curiosity and observational skills. I love learning and going through the journey of a research project. But over the years, I felt as if something was still missing—I longed to have more creative input in my career.

Then one day I discovered UX; I was blown away that there seemed to be a perfect fit for my natural curiosity, organization, and drive to make things better. I love this field; it's the perfect fit for my interests (research and design), strengths (problem solving and eye for detail) and personality (empathetic, analytical, and dedicated).

Outside of Work

When I’m not working, I'm trying to meet new people and experience new places. I enjoy life. I enjoy traveling to new places, attempting new hobbies, and tasting new foods. I love being outside in nature—hiking, camping, and kayaking, it’s all exciting to me. I enjoy seeing nature's natural changes, both in the seasons and throughout the day.
