I am a bootcamp graduate who transitioned into a career in UX Research. Today, I'm a senior UX researcher at YETI and previously led research efforts for multiple Fortune 500 companies. With the help of great mentors I’ve progressed quickly in my career and have fun while doing it.

I am a mixed-method researcher that specializes in qualitative research such as usability testing, user interviews, and card sorting. In addition, I regularly present research findings to stakeholders.

Between making UX YouTube videos and being a Board of Director on IxDA (Interaction Design Association), I’ve helped thousands of unique individuals on a large scale. Today, I want to help on a more personal, 1 on 1 basis to help you succeed.

Whether you define success as creating a research portfolio, interview preparation, overcoming imposter syndrome, or simply figuring out what area in UX to pursue, I’d love to support you!

5 out of 5 stars

Kristen has great insights into the world of user research and is just a fun person to talk to in general! She helped me navigate the first 90 days of my first UXR job and gave great advice on how to make an impact. I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in furthering their career in the field of user research.

Kristen is vehement about me learning and achieving my goal to become a UX Researcher. She is positive, intuitive, pragmatic and humble. I want to keep her as my mentor permanently.
