Who's behind this?

I'm a Design Leader, Educator, and Entrepreneur. My past experience includes designing for 100+ Financial corporations around the globe. Part designer, part businesswoman — I’ve helped many Fortune 100 with their innovation and digital transformation projects. 

Over my career, I've learned most things the hard way. I've struggled, made many mistakes, and constantly wondered why no one had taught me all these things before.

I've created this space to provide resources and online courses to you so you can get further, easier and faster than I did.

Don't take my word for it

Sara is an amazing designer, teacher, and listener, and I am extremely fortunate to have had her as my mentor. I cannot recommend her enough based on her vast experience in design, her friendly and positive attitude, and her amazing ability to assess and tackle any situation as they came.

Autumn Tran

UI/UX Designer at Clearhead

Sara is an excellent mentor. She's incredibly challenging, friendly, knowledgeable, and constantly engaging. Her enthusiastic personality is addictive. Sara manages a large group of students but I never felt pushed to the side. I'm very grateful for being paired with her.

Michael Messina

Senior User Experience Specialist at Travelers

Sara was beyond encouraging. Her constructive criticism is on point, with a huge emphasis on constructive - she genuinely wants to see her mentees grow. On a more personal level, her positivity is contagious - she's smart, driven, enthusiastic, and extraordinarily easy to get along with.

Emma Nadolny Young

Freelance UX/UI Designer

I had a great experience having Sara as my mentor. Sara was professional, thorough, and her feedback was always very welcomed because her attitude was positive and encouraging. I’m very grateful to have been mentored by Sara and would strongly recommend her.

Ash Montes

UX Designer at Ocado

My learning experience was most definitely shaped by Sara's brilliant expertise and her support. Whenever I faced challenges, Sara would draw from her own industry experiences to provide valuable insights and tips but still ultimately empowered me to be confident in my design decisions.

Emily Huang

Experience Designer at Intrepid (Accenture Interactive)

She is highly professional as a designer and as a mentor as well. Every time we had a session, she provided practical tips and encouraged me to do at least a bit more than the task required. I am so grateful for the time I had her as a mentor.
