A bit about me ...
I am a project manager turned UX designer, based in Calgary, AB.
Pivoting from project management to user experience design has allowed me to capitalize on several of my strengths: creativity, collaboration, problem solving and delivering results.
Fun Fact: I love making people laugh. If you enjoy cheesy parenting humour checkout my youtube channel called Mom Shorts TV, with short videos that a friend and I have produced.
A bit about my career path ...
From my beginnings in Pharmacy I jumped into project management and product implementation for a health care technology company. The leadership, collaboration and presentation skills I gained in this role were invaluable.
In the midst of taking time to be home with my kids, I started my own pediatric sleep consulting business. This was a great opportunity to build on my problem solving and communication skills, giving me the opportunity to lead multiple seminars, webinars, and even appear in a tv interview with Breakfast Television Edmonton. I enjoyed developing skills in digital marketing and web design as I grew my brand.
In 2021 I began exploring careers in design. I started taking courses on graphic and web design, eventually starting another company: Paxwell Creative. This lead to me to the game changing discovery of UX Design. The balance of creative and analytical/problem solving was a great match for my skill set.
Today, I am passionate about using the principles of UX to design user-centred products, increasing efficiency and boosting profits for businesses!
