As a seasoned professional with a comprehensive skillset and extensive experience, I excel in a wide range of design disciplines, including UX research, design strategy, product design, and agile development. My proficiency in design thinking allows me to approach complex problems with a user-centric perspective and develop innovative solutions. Additionally, I possess exceptional leadership skills that enable me to lead and mentor design teams, fostering a collaborative and supportive work environment.
Design thinking is a problem-solving approach that puts the user at the center of the design process. The process begins with empathizing with the user to understand their needs and pain points. This is followed by defining the problem and ideating potential solutions. The ideas are then prototyped and tested with users to gather feedback and refine the design. This iterative process continues until a final solution is developed that meets the needs of the user and solves the problem effectively. Design thinking encourages creativity and collaboration, and it allows for a flexible and iterative approach to design. The process is not limited to designers and can be applied to various fields and industries to solve complex problems and create innovative solutions.
My research process begins by defining the research goals, selecting and recruiting participants, and planning the research methods, timeline, and budget. I collect data using various techniques, such as conducting interviews, administering surveys, observing user behavior, and performing usability testing. After collecting the data, I analyze it to identify patterns, trends, and insights that can be used to inform the design process. The findings are then shared with stakeholders, and the insights are incorporated into the design process. The design is iterated based on feedback gathered during the research, and this process is ongoing as the product evolves and user needs change. As a UX researcher, my role is to ensure that the user's needs are always at the forefront of the design process.
My design process begins by aligning with product strategy and user needs. This involves understanding goals, target audience, and competitive landscape, followed by research to identify user needs and pain points. Insights gathered are used to define design principles and guidelines. I collaborate with stakeholders, including product managers, engineers, and marketers, to ensure design strategy aligns with product strategy. User feedback is gathered throughout the design process to refine the design strategy. Finally, the design strategy is communicated to ensure everyone is aligned. This ongoing process should be revisited and refined as product and market needs change.
I believe that collaboration between design and agile development teams is crucial for a successful product. It all starts with the design team creating wireframes, prototypes, and high-fidelity designs to capture the product vision and user needs. We then work closely with the development team to ensure that the designs are implemented correctly and that any issues are addressed promptly. Regular design reviews and user testing are conducted to ensure that the design meets the needs of the users and is aligned with the product strategy. The iterative nature of agile development also allows for flexibility, which enables the design to evolve as the product is developed. Ultimately, this collaboration ensures that the final product is not only functional but also delivers a great user experience.
What people say
“I have enjoyed working with Beatrice, who always delivered high quality and inspiring designs. Beatrice was leading the design team responsible for Data Integration and API Federation product lines during her time at MuleSoft. Her ability to balance multiple projects simultaneously, meticulous approach toward UX design that was influenced by deep user research, and keen attention to detail have impressed me greatly. I would love to work with her again!”
Sr. Director, Salesforce
“Beatrice as a UX manager is similar to the Load Balancer in Google Cloud. She understands people's strengths and distributes each of her designer's work and efforts strategically to reach their fullest potential. I had the pleasure of working with Beatrice at Google Cloud. She was my UX manager, and I can confidently say she's excellent! She was a fantastic listener and truly cared about my growth. One moment that stood out to me was when she led our team of seven designers to create a presentation for upper management to showcase the potential of our platform for our users. She effectively brought the team together and made a compelling presentation that received outstanding feedback from upper management. It was a crucial moment in developing our platform, and it was due to her leadership that we delivered a successful outcome. I highly recommend Beatrice for any UX management role. She's dedicated, skilled, and a true professional..”

“Beatrice created a culture of collaboration and connectedness between the two teams, and clearly aligned resources and direction on our projects.When informed of a project priority change, Beatrice quickly brought UX help onto the project to deliver designs at an incredible speed in order to unblock engineering efforts. When seeing a gap in requirements, Beatrice stepped in to help define not only UX requirements and get designs completed, but also became the go to thought leader on the project, filling in gaps and answering questions to get the project well understood for the engineering team.”
