I’m Emily Bowman and I’m a user experience designer with a keen interest in research, design strategy, and innovation. Once upon a time I was an educator, and I’m constantly looking for opportunities to keep that dream alive in the UX world. So whether it’s mentoring interns or leading a local UX meetup, I’m all about droppin knowledge.
According to the Myers Briggs, I’m an INFP… which makes me perfectly suited to all the jobs I’ve ever had. If you’re a development junkie like me, you may be familiar with my professional strengths (as identified by the fine folks at Gallup): adaptability, empathy, relator, intellection, and futuristic. If not, here’s a little translation: I’m a strong user advocate who thrives in fast-paced environments and works well with teams; I spend a lot of time in my head, and it’s mostly thoughts about how to make myself and everything I do better/faster/stronger.
Whenever I’m not getting things done, I enjoy spending time with my husband Jeffrey and powerpup Maple. Friends and family also top the list, but are increasingly subject to the geographical divide–thank god for the internet! I also love to be in the kitchen, and baking, brewing, and canning are my favorite things to do. I enjoy camping and the outdoors, writing, and catering to my insatiable technophilia with long episodes of web surfing and tinkering with my iPad.
Thanks for stopping by!
