UX Researcher at Etsy
Area of Expertise: Design, Product, UX
Career Level: Mid
Ask Me About: Public Speaking, Salary Negotiation
Currently a Senior UX Researcher at Etsy, where I help our native app teams ground their decision-making in user insights. Before Etsy, I was a UX Researcher at Morgan Stanley and Meetup. I even spent a year as a Product Manager, which helped me understand how user researchers can most effectively partner with PMs. When I was first trying to break into the UX industry, I did not have many mentors or peers to ask for advice. I am now eager to help promising researchers and designers succeed in this field, from finding that First Job to thriving in your role. Outside of work, I spend my time taking boxing classes, cooking subpar meals, and consuming content on the Internet. In my past life, I was a hip hop and contemporary dancer, as well as an avid amateur artist.
