LET'S CHAT

Are you considering a career in User Experience/User Interface Design, but have no idea how to navigate the industry to actually land your first role? Or maybe you've taken some courses but still don't feel confident or that your work is good enough?

I totally feel you! I was there and had all of the same questions you've probably had at one time or another. That's why I created this 1:1 coaching program! I also know how frustrating and lonely it can be trying to navigate a new space. So let me help you stop doubting yourself, your work, and your ability to get the results you want. Oh, and did I mention these sessions are 100% custom crafted around your needs?

UX Coaching?

What is UX Coaching?

l

My coaching sessions are aimed to help aspiring & entry level UX Designers, UX Researchers, Product Designers & User Interface (UI) Designers feel equipped for everything from putting together a successful portfolio to performing well on the job. These sessions can include but are not limited to topics on: UX career guidance, project feedback, portfolio feedback, advice on bootcamps, interview preparations, issues that have arisen on the job, etc. I am your source of all things UX and UI, so come prepared with your projects, questions, concerns, or anything else you’d like to discuss.

What It's Not!

l

1:1 coaching is not intended to be working sessions. The actual work will be done at the conclusion of our call once you have received your feedback and resources document from me, which will include all of your action items. During the sessions, we'll hone in on your pain points, break them down, and you'll receive direction on how to better tackle them in order to reach your goals.

let's discuss

TRUST ME, I KNOW

I know how you feel because I was you

I got tired of playing small. I came from a background in interactive arts, however I never learned how to bridge the gap between what I created and those who used it. I also wanted a more meaningful career and simultaneously knew there was more I could do with my design skills.

SO I went for it

Since then I took the leap into UX & never looked back!

After a few years of working as a Graphic Designer, I decided to grab a hold of my career and enrolled into a UX course where I learned the ins and outs of User Experience Design. However, after my course I figured out what it really took to land my first UX role. I learned not only what it meant to present myself through my portfolio, but over phone interviews, in person interviews, etc. I uncovered 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!

I’VE BEEN KNOCKING DOWN DOORS EVER SINCE

Since landing my first UX Role I...

Landed another one that I love at a larger company with more responsibilities.

Had the honor of mentoring several clients along their UX journey before I launched my UX coaching service.

Built multiple platforms around my expertise that have over 3,000 unique visitors each month.

Mentored elementary and high school STEM students.

Are you ready to
Finally have that career you jump out of bed for?
You have the power and potential to Design the life you want.
Also, become that amazing UX designer we both know you can be?
Of Course you are!

q: What are youR thoughts on the RESOURCES Ashley provided you at the end of your session?

"It (The working Google Doc) was very helpful. It shows you are invested in our success and really want us to improve. It was nice to have the document as well so I could always refer back to it."

q: How has this coaching program helped you on your path to becoming a User Experience Designer?

"I really appreciate you taking the time to offer me a coaching session. I found your tips and advice to be very helpful and I have already implemented them into my portfolio and work. If I ever need more coaching I will definitely be contacting you. Thanks again!"

this is for you if:

You’re currently applying to UX related roles, but have had trouble landing one.

You've landed a UX job interview but have no clue how to prepare for it.

You've taken a UX related class and or internship but feel you need further development in order to succeed on the job.

You have projects, case studies, etc. that you'd like feedback on.

You're interested in the UX field but would like more information, tips, and advice from someone currently working in the field.

You have a portfolio that needs review or help constructing .

I Approach coaching in three important ways

Empathy

I’ve been right where you are and know how frustrating and time consuming it can be trying to land the roles you want. I’m here to help relieve you of the stress you’ve been under and strategize with you to get to where you want to be.

Empowerment

Gone are the days of feeling like you’re on your own applying for your next UX Design job, prepping for interviews or feeling alone in this process. I remember the days of researching other UX Designers on Linkedin trying to understand the path they took to land their opportunities. During this process I will help equip you with the know-how to get out there confidently and go for what you want. YOU too can do this.

Enjoyment

Trust me, this process will be fun! So embrace where you are now in your journey and let’s have a ball getting you to where you want to be.

How it Works

Let’s get to know each other. I want to know who you are, where you are in your UX journey, what you already know, what information you need to achieve your goals, etc. Below is a short survey that will allow us to do just that. Upon completion of the survey, I’ll be in touch with next steps for a free short 10 minute 1:1 call. From there, we’ll work together to figure out which of my services work best for you!
