With burnout being a big driver of the ongoing Great Resignation, I felt compelled to design a solution to help a user share their burn out status. In a modern workplace app such as Slack - it could really be impactful and reactive to how workers mindsets are shifting!ย 

Even in close knit teams, it can be hard to be 100% open and honest about how you're dealing with life, world events, work stress, etc.

By using a dedicated status, I thought that it could help convey an important message to others by symbolizing: "hey, I'm struggling here" or "hey, I could use one less meeting today".

After my first time in a UX portfolio review, I had the chance to meet with many professionals through the Meetup app!

I met with professionals from all over the country in a group called UX in ATX.

Wanted to officially share my portfolio after some edits and redesign! If you have any critiques, ideas or comments - send them my way!

In an attempt to capture the attention of any Calm App recruiters, I made my resume into the form factor of the app by utilizing Figma.

Within 30 minutes, I had created a replica mockup of the Calm app with my professional experiences, skills and interests listed! Take a look, let me know what you think!
