What students say

"Lauren is inspiring and generous. She took the time to understand my goals and challenge areas in UX, and made the learning personal, engaging, and focused. Her mastery of UX is extensive, but it’s her character that really sets her apart. She approached each conversation with enthusiasm and sincerity, and I knew I could ask her anything! Lauren’s support played a big role in my career transition into UX. I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor."

- Kristi Allen, UX Academy

"Very helpful with my projects and gave me a lot of resources to utilize. She was also very flexible and understanding about my time constraints. Thank you Lauren!"

- Vanessa Chan, Design 101 v1
