Mostly

  • Design training

About Zoë

My UX career started in the UK, where I worked for organisations like the BBC, Cambridge University Press, and GOV.UK, as well as a range of startups. Later I moved to Melbourne, where I worked for organisations like Seek and PwC before becoming a UX trainer at General Assembly.

In late 2018 I moved to Canberra. An injury that made me disabled shaped the next two years.

My first career was as a high school teacher. Learning technologies and workplace learning have been threaded throughout my UX career.

I am a member of the Australian Institute of Training and Development (AITD).

I speak regularly at conferences and events, including UX Australia.
