I am currently an HMI User Experience Engineer for Daimler Trucks North America. I’m working to revolutionize the trucking industry by bringing modern UX to our product. Before that I’ve worked in education, augmented reality, and interior design.
I’ve begun to pursue a Masters Degree in User Experience Design from Kent State University to further my knowledge and passion for the field.
I love the color pink and adore living in Portland. I consider myself a Photoshop guru and consider it my kind of art.
In addition to UX I have skills in 3D animation and augmented reality design. I practice in Maya, SketchUp and Unity.
“I have worked with Brittany for some time now and in that time have learned more than I realized I didn’t know! She is very concentrated, organized and has a good mind for user experiences and all that entails when crafting such experiences. Besides being extremely capable in setting up and running UX tests, and analyzing the data and providing top-notch reports, she is also talented in visual design and is a Maya teacher to boot!
Finally, Brittany is a great person, super fun to work with and is very conscious of the varying personalities that exist in any workplace. She naturally works well with people and is comfortable leading at team or working within a team.”
