About Me

Jessica Ivins

The Day Job

I’m a user experience (UX) designer and faculty member at Center Centre, the UX design school in Chattanooga, TN. I prepare students to be industry-ready junior UX designers. Prior to joining Center Centre, I worked in the Philadelphia area as a senior experience designer at Happy Cog and the lead UX designer at AWeber.

Everything Else

I dedicate much of my time to the UX community. I give workshops on topics like brainstorming, sketching, and public speaking. I speak internationally at conferences such as SXSWi, Midwest UX, IA Summit, UX Camp Ottawa, and UX Cambridge (UK). I also publish articles for aspiring UX designers on my blog.

While in Philadelphia, I spoke at dozens of meetups and local events. I taught classes for Girl Develop It, led UX Book Club, and served on the board of Philadelphia’s UX community, PhillyCHI.
