Leah Russell

Vice President of User Experience Design, HomeAdvisor

Denver

Leah started her career in Public Relations, quickly learning it was not the world for her. Fortunately, she was able to move into the emerging world of the internet, where they were exploring this new, ambiguous world of “Information Architecture” (with her employer readily admitting they weren’t completely sure what the role was but that the title sure sounded fancy). It was instant love. As her career grew, she helped to establish and foster the IA - and later UX - role in several internet consulting companies before moving to the corporate side, working in both the US and Europe for companies such as Hilton, Travelocity and lastminute.com. Her true passion is professional development, ensuring the field continues to grow with knowledgeable, educated practitioners enthusiastic about completely understanding and catering to customers. Originally from Dallas, she moved to Denver to work for HomeAdvisor in 2012 and has no intention of ever moving again. She holds degrees in Public Relations and Religious Studies from Southern Methodist University, proving that good UX designers can come from any education or background.
