A UX Researcher & Designer, and a storyteller at heart
My name is Jenny Wickman.
I strive to be an empathic listener, an effective communicator, and a curious pattern finder in my work. I think those are necessary skills for incorporating user needs into the design process, helping create a product or service suited for its users.
