Public speaking is a passion of mine. It's my way to give back to the design community. I’m a career shifter, mentor, and design leader. Even though I’m still learning as I progress in my design career, I’ve always been motivated to share my learnings to help others in UX grow.
My goal is to help teach UX designers about a new skill or practice. Educating others is incredibly important to me. One of the best ways to develop that knowledge is to share my real-life experiences to other practitioners. That's why I dedicate my spare time speaking and organizing events.
