About Me

Jessica Ivins

In a Nutshell

I’m a User Experience (UX) designer and educator who speaks, writes, and volunteers for many things UX. In August of 2014 I’ll be joining the team at Center Centre, a UX design school in Chattanooga, Tennessee, as a full time faculty member. I’ve spoken internationally at conferences such as SXSW, Midwest UX, IA Summit, UX Camp Ottawa, and UX Cambridge (UK). I’ve organized UX book club meetings, taught classes for Girl Develop It Philadelphia, and served on the board of PhillyCHI, Philadelphia’s UX community. Prior to joining Center Centre, I was a senior experience designer at Happy Cog and lead UX designer at AWeber.

I’m passionate about making everything I interact with both easy and enjoyable to use. I drive my family nuts by complaining about the plastic film on food containers that can’t be removed without a knife.

Outside of work, I like to cook and read. I’m also frequently enjoying a fine glass of Malbec or an IPA.
