How I Got Here

In 2019, I hit a crossroads in my tech startup career. Burnout was real and invited me onto a journey of self-discovery. This period marked a shift from the hectic life of Operations and Sales to the peacefulness of Southeast Asia.

In Asia's calm surroundings, I began teaching yoga, more than just a physical practice. It was here, through creating experiences that resonated with my students, that I honed my ability to empathize and connect – skills that are the backbone of my UX process.

Back home, while building my yoga website in Webflow, I reconnected with a passion I always had: Design. User Experience Design wasn't just an interest; it was the confluence of my management and marketing expertise with my newfound focus on human-centric experiences.

During the pandemic, I delved into a bootcamp, fully immersing myself in the field. This education, fused with my diverse experiences, prepared me for a new adventure at ZEAL in late 2021. Here, under the mentorship of Amy Dutton, I began to truly thrive as a Product Designer.
