Tammie in AmsterdamThe Beginning…

My first degree is in Computer Science and Mathematics at Central Missouri State University. While completing this degree, I chose to spend a year in Edinburgh, Scotland, at Napier University. It was there that I learned about user centered design. After my year abroad, I returned to the US to complete my bachelor’s degree. However, I knew that this would not be my final career. After working 9 months as a developer in Kansas City, I went back to the UK to complete my MSc in Human Centered Computer Systems at the University of Sussex.

The usability bug bites…

I never looked back. I love working with users and designing software that makes their lives happier/easier. One of most memorable interview quotes came from a doctor I was interviewing. He said my design would “help save lives.” I currently have over 10 years of experience as a usability engineer and have worked with a variety of users, including the following:
