Are you considering a career in User Experience Design, but have no idea how to get started ? Or maybe you've read articles or done research on YouTube and tried to follow along but are still stuck in the same spot not making any progress. I was there and had all of the same questions you've probably had at one time or another.
That's why I initially created my 1:1 coaching program! My clients are landing roles, completing portfolio’s and becoming more confident and prepared in the UX interview process. However, I noticed that so many of the people who would come to me for help were a little earlier in their journey. They needed the right information when it came to what UX is, who can do it and how. They were looking for someone to help them with developing a body of work to show a potential employer. Many were excited about potentially getting into a new career in UX, but were scared to try something new in fear that they wouldn’t be good enough. That's when I realized, these people were looking for the right training. I 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 land your dream job!
This program was designed by me for self motivated aspiring UX Designers. The program is 16 weeks, and will entail weekly live lessons and assignments with weekly feedback. This program gives you the opportunity to not only gain the skills you need to become a successful UX Designer, but the opportunity to work and communicate weekly with me, a UX/UI Designer currently working in the field. At the completion of the program, you’ll not only walk away with a portfolio built with numerous projects, but be fully prepared to interview for that dream UX role.

I got tired of playing small. Frustrated and ready for change, I felt stuck in my current graphic design role not knowing what else I could do. Exhausted going from articles, to youtube videos looking for ways to learn UX on my own, I knew I had to seek a more streamlined professional way to gain these skills and ultimately get the outcome I knew was possible.
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!
Coached aspiring UX Designers to expand and revise projects and portfolios, prepare for interviews and get prepared to land the roles their dream UX roles.
Landed another one that I love at a larger company with more responsibilities.
Built multiple platforms around my expertise that have over 3,000 unique visitors each month.
