About

My name is Pamela! I'm a curious and passionate UX researcher & designer and creative director. I love talking to people and asking questions in order to solve everyday problems.

I'm currently completing my final semester of my undergraduate degree at Carleton University. I am majoring in cognitive science with a concentration in psychology & cognition and a minor in archaeology. A whole mouth full, am I right? Presently, I am an experienced student researcher studying privacy risk perception of artificial intelligence chatbot doctors. I previously have participated in the Students as Partners Research Program with the Carleton University Discovery Centre. Additionally, you can also find my previous research published in The Corvus Journal of Classics and Ancient History.

My journey into UX began in 2019 when I joined the herd at Jumping Elephants as a UX research and design consultant. I've worked with many public sector clients, such as the National Research Council, The Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner, the Treasury Board Secretariat, just to name a few. Most recently, I've worked as a UX designer at an insurance startup called Slice Labs.

In the spring of 2020, I became the creative director for Canvas Collective and work closely with up and coming RnB artist, Cerae.

Out of the office

I love to create and experiment in new artistic mediums. I have a knack for painting, drawing, music, poetry, and video editing. I post all of my work on my Instagram page, @artimitatespamela. I also love quad roller skating. You can find me at your local roller rink in a pair of sparkly gold skates!

You've learned a bit about me! Now, I would love to hear from you.
