Why Me? Reasons to Work with Me

I have focused determination to solve issues and to be an advocate for both the business & the users. Others agree.

Shannon is great at organizing, pursuing goals, and getting results…It is really amazing! She works hard to find the best methods for a solution and looks for an outcome that everyone could be happy with.

My multi-disciplinary background and strategic thinking are two of my greatest strengths.
I have diverse experience in strategy, UX, design, technology, research, project management, psychology, marketing, and customer communications. Seeing the big picture and all the pieces needed is something I excel in.

I have an entrepreneurial mindset and I can wear many hats.
I co-owned a tech company; I am a self-starter who manages my time & responsibility well. I did everything from websites to marketing. I have worked with both small and big companies. Independently or on a team.

I learn quickly and do great work.
I have a recommendation letter that I can provide upon request that reviews my quick learning skills in conducting a weeklong conference with only 2 hours of training.

Shannon did an outstanding job, in fact, such a standout job that I tried to convince her to move to Washington, DC and work for me. She is the only volunteer out of the 100 to impress me this way.

I get real results by going the extra mile.
I have a history of going the extra mile and have received performance awards. At Delta Airlines, I debugged system issues and also received overflow customer service calls. I was uncomfortable with selling, but I decided to turn it into a game and experiment with different ideas & wording. Because of my mindset and effort, I sold over 1 million in revenue & ranked in the top 20% of all Delta offices worldwide. This is just one example. I strive to get real results.

I enjoy UX immensely.
Curiosity and finding solutions are what drive me. I love the variety and how UX combines many of my interests. I attend UX, Design, and Tech meetups/events regularly. I have a subscription to high-quality UX Seminars. I am a very adaptable person who actively seeks out opportunities to grow.
