I SPEAK BECAUSE...
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. 
TALK TOPICS
I specialize in topics around career growth, job preparation, and design skills. I do panels, presentations, webinars, and workshops customized to the audience.
 
For STUDENTS and CAREER SHIFTERS, I have done talks around:
  • Building an online presence using LinkedIn
  • Creating a design portfolio
  • Interviewing for UX design positions
  • Owning your career path
  • Networking online
  • Finding mentorship
 
For UX DESIGNER practitioners, I have done talks around:
  • B2B vs. B2C design
  • Design workshops
  • Working with Product Managers
  • Design strategy and research
  • Storytelling
  • Partnering with Engineering
  • Managing teams
  • Diversity and inclusion
EXPERIENCE
I’ve done 50+ speaking events at conferences, universities, design groups, non-profits, and tech companies.
