Avriel is a User Experience Designer with a background in Psychology and a life-long interest in computers and technology. She started her professional career in Chicago as a therapist working with families in foster care and running trauma groups for teens and adults. During her time as a therapist she started learning html/css and got interested in the creative processes behind applications and websites. She has found User Experience Design to be a great way to merge her two passions.
After taking a UX immersive course in Chicago she began working for Sears in their Integrated Retail Labs designing applications that brought the online shopping experience into brick & mortar stores. Most recently she worked with the Set Top Box design team at TiVo working on their Video On Demand feature. She has worked on websites, mobile applications, large-scale kiosks, and TV interfaces. She enjoys keeping up with current UX trends and learning new ways to improve user experiences both on and offline.
