Jess’s diverse background gives her an edge to other UX designers I have worked with. She pulls from traditional design theory to solve complex software problems and couples her superior visual design skills with design thinking practices to produce innovative, deeply meaningful experiences for the clients and products she works on. Jess is a jack-of-all trades ranging from research to interaction design through high fidelity visuals. This approach and breadth to her practice has given her a much deserved reputation of respect among her peers and leadership as a cross functional designer. Jess thrives in collaborative, team environments and is able to quickly digest complex problems and ideate solutions with an ease, calmness and confidence that speaks beyond her years of experience. She was always someone I could depend on to hit deadlines, collaborate with any personality and is worth her weight in gold on any design team.

Jess is one of those amazing designer unicorns who is skilled in everything from visual design, to research, and project management. Always my go to person to collaborate with because of her perceptive critiques and insightful creative contributions. Her ability to handle dozens of tasks across multiple projects at the same time has always impressed me and speaks to her excellent time management skills. She ran many usability sessions and interviews with both consumers and professionals, helping our product team make the best choices in the design of our products. She’s reliably saved the day many times by creating amazing prototypes in a flash during rapid design sprints and fooled many people into thinking her quick prototypes were real working software. I definitely look forward to working with her again and would highly recommend her to any team.

Jessica is a highly capable designer who has the rare combination of skills that allow her to both rapidly sketch early concepts based on primary research and then produce highly professional visual designs. Jessica was a key design resource for dozens of projects — flexing from research, prototyping, requirements definition, and polished visual assets for client presentations. She is able to handle multiple threads of work and switch context without losing momentum. More importantly, she never loses her cool and remains a pleasant and positive influence on her co-workers. I recommend Jessica highly. Any design team would be lucky to have her on board.
