I got tired of playing small.
I come from a background in interactive arts however, I never learned to bridge the gap between what we create and who will use it.
I wanted a more meaningful career and I knew there was more I could do with design.
After a few months of freelancing, I took the leap into UX bootcamp where I learned the ins and outs of User Experience Design. However after my bootcamp, I figured out what it really took to land my first UX role.
Not only what it meant present myself through my portfolio, but over phone interviews, in person interviews, etc. I figured out what it took to get in the door!
Because of that, I was able to land two roles at large companies and you can too!
Landed another one that I love at a larger company with more responsibilities
Mentored elementary and high school STEM students
Built multiple platforms around my expertise of with 3,000 unique visitors each month
Had the honor of mentoring several clients during their UX journey before I launched my UX business.
My 60 minute coaching sessions are aimed to help aspiring & entry level UX Designers, UX Researchers, & UI Designers feel equipped for everything from putting together a successful portfolio to performing well on the job. You may use these sessions for anything you'd like or I can advise you down a path if you have no clue where to start! These sessions can be use for things like picking my brain on the industry today, the future industry, project feedback, advice on bootcamps, interview preparations, etc.
These are not meant to be project working sessions. Prior to your sessions we will outline what we'll be discussing and reviewing for that session. By the end of our call you'll have clear action items and next steps.

Perfect for interview preparation and portfolio reviews, this single coaching session is intended to give you that boost you've been needing to feel confident about applying for your next UX opportunity. End the session with clear action items and resources as you continue to work towards your goals.
These eight sessions will assist you in a way that ensures that you have a solid portfolio, cover letter, resume, interview preparation, etc. In the beginning we'll develop a roadmap to ensure that you have everything you need and are prepared to interview. Unlike Monthly sessions, on going sessions look to further develop several different areas.
Week 1/2 - Reworking projects or starting new ones from briefs I will provide!
Week 3 - Further developing your portfolio in a way to sell yourself automatically.
Week 4/5/6 - Working on a few case studies, getting further UX development in research/user testing
Week 7/8 - Rewriting your resume /Interview preparation!
Think of these four sessions as the bridge that gets you from your your bootcamp /UX courses to your next UX role. The idea here is that at the end of each session, you'll have action items to work on during the week. During your next session, we'll take a look a your work, you'll get feedback, and we'll move on to the next topic you want to discuss.
