I’m Emily! I’m a teacher turned UX Designer with a passion for UI and research currently residing in beautiful Seattle, Washington. My 7 years of teaching experience taught me to empathize with users and craft enriching experiences. I approach every project with a Midwestern work ethic and a sense of humor. In May of 2018, I completed the User Experience Certification program at the School of Visual Concepts and am looking for full-time employment as a UX Designer.
As a teacher, I could see and hear how my actions made a difference in every student’s life. I started teaching online, researching programs to put my experience and skills to use. User experience design matched my existing skills, but I had a lot of new software to learn. The School of Visual Concepts announced their certificate program and I jumped at the opportunity. I learned how to make an impact
When I’m not designing I love exploring new trails with my husband Ben and Boston terrier Bear on Ben There, Done That. I also love skiing in the mountains, urban sketching, coffee, and pizza.
