Hi, I'm Jessica Versaw.

My career has always centered around users -- I've worked in customer support, sales, and as a Quality Engineer. These days, I'm looking to continue focusing on users while incorporating my passion for research and design as a Product Designer at Quantum Workplace. 

I'm currently working on a Master’s Degree in Human Computer Interaction at Iowa State University, and have a BA in English as well as a BJ in Advertising & Public Relations from the University of Nebraska.

I'm a sucker for solid microcopy and bold, happy design. I have a strong interest in cognitive psychology and how it can be used to create intuitive design. Research makes me downright giddy (which explains the English degree).

The Personal Quick Hits:

👶🏻 I have one baby, Adelaide, one dog, Felicity, and two cats, Gwendolen and Cecily. I spend approx. 80% of my weekends trying to get non-blurry photos of some mix of the four.

🌽 My dad was in the Air Force, so I lived all over. In 5th grade, I told him I couldn’t move to Nebraska because I’d die. I then went to college here and have been not-dying in Nebraska for 12 years.

🚴🏻‍♀️ I dig spinning, biking, and being outside in basically any capacity except mowing.

🧁 I enjoy cooking and baking, and have been teaching myself how to decorate cakes. I try to put tahini on most things (but not cakes).

🎙 I love almost any true crime podcast, which is a hobby that makes my husband only mildly nervous.

💸 YNAB has OPINIONS about my addiction to sassy desk supplies.
