Backstage Blog - 2020 -
Kyle has been working as an independent UX Research Consultant for the last 15 years. She’s based in New Hampshire and is originally from Philadelphia. She specializes in user research and usability testing. She’s the Founder and President of NH UXPA and served as the Chair of PhillyCHI. She’s also been serving as the IAC Mentorship Director since 2017. We asked her the same few questions we do of all the team:
What’s been your favourite moment as an IA (so far)?
It’s an honor to be able to help people by creating a better experience for the products they use. It’s always fascinating to learn more about the end user’s world in order to design better for it.
What made you decide to volunteer for IAC?
I’m passionate about mentorship and the growth of this industry. It’s rewarding to be able to give back to this community, which has given me so much, in a way that also provides an outlet for my passion.
What does the theme mean to you – what are you hoping to see, hear, sense or share during IAC20?
I love this year’s theme because we truly are the Sense Makers! I’m looking forward to Abby Covert’s keynote. Her book, How to Make Sense of Any Mess, was absolutely pivotal for me in understanding how information is actually created. It changed the way I think about information and our ability to manipulate and control the data that’s being used to interpret the content that we create and present to the world.
