Hi there👋🏻

I'm Vanessa - a UX Designer based in Vancouver, Canada. I hold a diploma in UX Design and a BBA with concentrations in Marketing & HR. Through my education, I am well versed in tackling problems that solve both user and business needs. 

I have always felt creative at heart, and during my business studies, I took a visual communication design course where I fell in love with the design thinking process. Pivoting to UX seemed natural as it allowed me to merge my passion for being creative with my need to solve interesting problems.

I believe in a human-centered and iterative approach to design, aiming to make digital experiences that are beautiful, usable, and accessible.
