About

Hi there! I'm Leah, Senior UX Designer with 7+ years of experience. Whether within Amazon or externally, I've coached and mentored junior to senior designers, and folks like myself who want to transition into the field of design.

If you need help with:
• career advice + planning
• interviewing (design challenge, portfolio presentation, behavioural questions, whiteboard challenges, and generally how to prepare for big tech)
• portfolio and/or CV/resume
• product review and strategy
• team collaboration
• influencing leadership
• design leadership

Reach out to me, and we'll agree on a plan together so that you can gain the next steps in your design career.

My career story:
I started my career in Program Management and unknowingly found myself wearing a designer's hat on a project. That peaked me interested and I started learning more about design and specifically more about UX. As my passion grew, I decided to formalize it by doing a Master's in Interaction Design while I worked at Amazon. During this time, I volunteered my time, worked on small projects, and spoke with a lot of design mentors, to hone my skills. I officially started as a designer-of-one within a development team, and worked my way into a growing design organisation, collaborating with designers, product managers, developers, scientists and program manager on complex solutions to tackle unique problems within the company. As I gained experienced, I began mentoring other designers, from junior- to senior-level, and interviewed and assessed a ton of design talent. Most recently, I decided to stand on my own feet so that I can make a larger impact with my design skills, including mentoring in the wider design community. And that's how I landed here, at MentorCruise, with you reading my career story.

Thank you + hope we will meet you so that I can hear your story!
