In 2012, Chris packed up everything she could fit into her car and headed to Chicago with a little more than a laptop and her fingers crossed. She started her UX career at small startup where she learned by doing and reading, reading, reading! Since then, she has shipped dozens of apps while working independently as a UX consultant. Now, 3 years later, Chris works on the mobile shopping team at Amazon and has designed experiences for phones, tablets, TVs and smartwatches. In her spare time, you can find her organizing UX Book Club Seattle, volunteering with ChickTech, and staying out late on a school night drinking beers with hooligans.
