"Talking to Angie felt like meeting an old friend"

I didn't have a design background or UX certifications when I secured my first role in the field. I was passionate about jumping into the industry and didn't feel the need to go to grad school to make that a reality.

I'm Angie, your UX friend.

I’m an experienced lecturer and passionate educator. I specialize in information architecture and web usability. I currently lead UX research and design for Connected Home products at Asurion.

more about me

hey there!

My UX Journey

I knew early on during my undergraduate studies in computer science that I wanted to work in UX. I remember reaching out to an alum that came to speak to my class about her role as a User Researcher. She hit me with, "You'll need to get a PhD." I was determined to go straight into the industry without building student loan debt.

I shaped my internship experiences during my time at school to help me land my first UX job with Nielsen Norman Group, an industry leader in user experience. 

Since then, I've lectured on Information Architecture, organized UX community events, and have mentored dozens of people in the field.

I will never be a gatekeeper that discourages anyone from following their dreams!

but it wasn't always this way.

This coaching program is the only one of its kind because...

I'll help you bring your full self to work

Along with the hard skills such as design and research that make you qualify for a role, I've interviewed many applicants and know that your personality is influential to your candidacy.

I fully believe in bringing your full self to work. More and more the lines are blurred between personal interests and work. For example, I make Instagram videos of me dancing in my living room. If someone is asking about my weekend, heck yeah I'm telling them about it. I'll help you build the confidence to bring more of your personality out in the workplace.

Not only will you get coaching on hard UX skills and techniques, but I'll provide support on the practical day-to-day nuances.

I'll guide you through the best practices in the industry

As a current practitioner, I'll help you apply the best UX design theories to build a case study. Real projects are complicated (especially if you haven't thought about it in a while) so I'll help you break down your work step-by-step.

Whether you are working on a new portfolio, or revisiting past work, I'll help you document and communicate your work effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I'm not sure UX is what I want to do?

Set up a free consultation and we can chat about your interests to see if this is the right move for you. I'll tell you about day-to-day responsibilities and more!

Do you offer financing or payment plans for students?

I do not offer financing at this time, but I do have student rates available. If you are a current student, please indicate in your application.

How is this different from online workshops and trainings?

We'll focus on whatever you need. If you have an interview to prepare for, I'll help with that. If we need to develop or deepen UX skills, we can work on that instead. Each session is tailored for YOUR needs.

Do I need to have a design background?

There are tons of roles in UX that are less design focused. UX strategy and UX research are two examples. Depending on your actual interests in the field, it may not be necessary to have design skills.

What if I don't have a portfolio?

No problem. Starting can feel like the hardest part. I'll help you identify any transferrable skills from your previous work and translate that into a UX case study.
