Lindsey Latiolais

Lindsey is a former UX Researcher with over 10 years in the field, and most recently a former Product Manager with about a year and a half of experience. After severely burning out and losing her job a year and a half ago, she’s been on a path of recovery and self-discovery, finding new passions and drives in a completely new mental landscape.

When not hanging out at her home in Bend, OR, Lindsey can be found at the local dog park with her 2 rescue pups, cosplaying at a fan convention, or scuba diving somewhere tropical. Though she doesn’t post much, feel free to reach out to her @coydahlia on Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin, or Discord if you want to chat.

Burn Out – Recognizing and Recovering

“Burnout” is a common buzzword these days, but what can it really look and feel like? How do you know it’s happening and how do you pull out of it? It’s not nearly as linear and clearcut as it sounds in the media.

A (former) UX Researcher/Product Manager will discuss her experiences with burnout to help others recognize the signs, find new ways to help them recover, or just make those experiencing it not feel so alone. This story doesn’t have a happy ending (yet?), but it’s also not a tragedy. Maybe the wreckage can be used to make something new and, if not beautiful, at least useful.

Educating User Researchers: Using UX Skills to Design a Research Training Program

Many people hoping to break into the field of user research don’t even know what skills are necessary to do the job and are missing fundamental concepts. They have to invest additional time and sometimes resources into gaining more skills, in addition to what they’ve already put into learning design skills they won’t use, and they have to rely on volunteer-mentors or companies to create apprenticeship training programs that vary wildly.

Some UX training programs for combine user research and UX design capabilities. This contributes to two problems: people aren’t appropriately trained in what they’ll truly need to do the work and to get a job in the field, and UX research isn’t respected as a discipline requiring specialized skills and knowledge. Training programs that focus on user research will give people the confidence to advocate for themselves and their expertise and, hopefully, encourage companies to recognize that not just anyone can whip out a survey or a usability test script and get back accurate, actionable insights that drive a better product.
