After earning my Bachelor's degree in graphic design in Lebanon and winning a Merit Award from the International Society of Typographic Designer in London, I packed my bags and left my country to pursue my Master's in computer arts and new media in San Francisco. During this time, I discovered my love for user research and design, and I worked with several startups in the Silicon Valley to hone my skills.
After completing my Master's, I took a job as a UI designer in Atlanta, but I missed the user research aspect of my work. Fortunately, my next job allowed me to combine both UX design and UX research, which I loved.
After being a UX designer for a few years, I met my amazing husband and we decided to have our own little family. So, I took a break from my career to raise my children and explore some other interests.
I became a certified coach and used my skills to work 1:1 and in group setting with women from diverse backgrounds build careers they love and improve their relationships. This work allowed me to learn more about human behavior, needs, and motivations, which have proven to be valuable assets in my UX work.
During my time as a coach, I also had the opportunity to write and publish three books which you can find on amazon. I also enjoyed giving presentations and teaching workshops across the country.
