HI, I'M ANA.

ABOUT ME

I’m a product designer based in Los Angeles - currently working at Learning Ovations. With a background in education, I strive to create beautiful, intuitive products (lesson plans) with empathy first (by understanding my students). I am a relentless problem solver who is curious about the world and a challenger of "what is".

JOURNEY TO UX

As a former teacher, my goals were to help my students learn through adapting to lesson plans, planning for formal and informal assessments, and presenting information to students in a way that they would understand. Little did I know, I was practicing these skills for my next career in UX design. When I joined my team at Learning Ovations as a literacy outcomes specialist, the work was more than just coaching teachers. I developed a natural instinct to create meaningful solutions for our teachers through empathy and was passionate about developing new ideas that would work for all internal and external stakeholders. I then developed our software's first Lesson Menu, utilized by partner schools across the nation, in collaboration with our engineering, operations and research team. As the first product designer of the company, I am continuously learning how to be adaptable, flexible and the be the user advocate for all users with designing for accessibility in mind. 

WHEN I'M NOT DESIGNING

You can find me at the nearest coffee shop, traveling to new places and exploring new wonders around the world.
