User Experience


Jane Iglesia

UX Team Lead

I’m an ESL Teacher gone UX Designer. My background is in Linguistics and Cultural Anthropology with a specialization in teaching English as a second language. I thrive best in a diverse environment where there is substantial purpose. I enjoy working on projects that inform and give back to the community; that open the mind to the world about beauty, art, culture, language and progression. UX Design allows me to utilize my insight of language, culture and working with students from around the world to impact people’s lives through inclusive designs.
