CodeMash
I have been accepted to speak at CodeMash 2023 in Sandusky, Ohio in January of 2023. The talk I will be presenting will be exploring how user research and a human centered approach can prevent product teams from developing software that users either don't need or don't desire. Ultimately we call these user-less products, Ghost Products.

Stir Trek
I was thrilled to be accepted to speak at the 2020 Stir Trek. I had planned a topic on how a research first approach can help companies save resources by innovating smarter and more efficiently. Unfortunately due to Covid, Stir trek had to be canceled and therefore so was my talk.

Grace Hopper Celebration
My colleague and I submitted a talk for the Grace Hopper conference covering our case study of voice assistant research in the utility space. Our presentation covered best practices for conducting an in home contextual inquiry and ethnography study. 

We discussed why our company had an interest in developing for voice technology, the value of a research first approach, our findings, and the lessons we learned for conducting this kind of research. We were able to present our research to 500 attendees and were invited to attend the remainder of the conference.

AEP Agile Conference
I had the opportunity to share a case study of voice assistant research in the utility space. My presentation covered best practices for conducting an in home contextual inquiry and ethnography study. 

It is important to me to share what I have learned in this space because so much about it is still being established. Not only do I enjoy speaking, but I also had the opportunity to learn from others in this space and bring that knowledge back to my team.
