My entry in to the wonderful world of UX
My entry into UX was a little unconventional, whilst working at Doddle as an Operations Manager, I was fortunate enough to partner with our product team and offer my field knowledge of our software hands on. I was able to present some wireframes that aided with the user pain points in store and helped the team redesign the store application booking path.
This is when the Head of product suggested that I was wasting my time and I should look into a future in UX. Shortly after my role was made redundant and I chose to complete an accredited Professional Diploma in UX Design and so my love for UX started.
