At 352, Amanda leads a team that provides user research, usability testing, and UX strategy services. Amanda has unique career-advancement insights from her tenure at a top recruiting agency, where she evaluated client needs and associate job descriptions, reviewed and interviewed many UX professionals, assessed candidates for particular roles, and helped UX professionals shape and advance their careers. Amanda frequently writes, speaks, and mentors. She has a human-factors background and an engineering degree from Tufts University. When Amanda is not performing UX magic, you can find her teaching fitness classes, drinking mojitos, and sunbathing with her spoiled pooch, Bromer. She likes to discuss all of this on Twitter at @MandaLaceyS.
