I'm Tara-Lee (Muise) York, a UX/UI Designer from the Fredericton area, NB, Canada. Currently, I am working at CGI as a UX/UI Designer.
Over the past six years, I have had the opportunity to mentor design students in UX/UI and as a career specialist at CareerFoundry. I also worked with various clients on web, branding, content writing and strategy.
I started my professional journey as a health care professional because of my strong desire to help and care for others. During my time as an LPN and health care worker, I developed a strong sense of empathy for others through caring for the elderly and disabled. I learned that life is precious no matter your age or ability.
Why the transition to UI/UX design? I have always enjoyed engaging both the creative and analytical parts of my brain. For a long time, I didn’t know how to combine the two into a career. Finding design was the perfect mix of the two for me.
My desire to help people has not changed. I intend to leverage my prior experience as a healthcare professional to bring a level of empathy and attention to detail that’s critical to making intuitive design experiences and content strategies for my clients.
Thank you for visiting my space on the web.
