I'm a former UX Director in finance, Senior UX Strategist in mental health, UX Mentor, and occasional Higher Education Teacher and Public Speaker.
I work directly with CEOs on UX Strategy and Computing lecturers at FE/HE colleges. I lead conference workshops, devise complex user research, build & manage teams, look after holistic user-business-technology experiences, and supervise juniors.
Leadership & Mentoring
With a background in technology and a passion for psychology, I quickly transitioned through all stages of product development towards UX and consulting. I've been advocating for humane design, leading teams, and improving experiences for 10+ years!
On my lifelong learning quest, I led teams, projects and research across several sectors. I designed and managed the creation of multiple web and mobile apps from the ground up, applying myself to unconventional projects such as 3D audio museum tours for the visually impaired, or securing first place in Google Startup Weekend for my team.
“Thank you for being such an amazing compère and live manager of the employability event at City College Plymouth last month.Dr Christopher Ford

If you have the opportunity to work with Paula – do not hesitate even a minute.”Dawid Makowski

She worked very hard and progressed steadily in blur Group, revealing her passion and enthusiasm for User Experience and Digital Design. Paula takes the initiative to identify problems and formulate solutions.

Paula showed great dedication and she proved that she is very confident of her goals and very dedicated to achieving them.”Dorian Tireli
“Paula is a full-stack creative genius who joined Duesday at the very beginning. She was pivotal in all aspects of our visual and user experience design and grew an award winning team around her delivering for all parts of the business. As UX Director Paula drove numerous task-based initiatives and user-research projects and as Team Lead and member of the Senior Management Team she guided seven staff throughout her time at Duesday. Paula is a team player with a keen appetite for company strategy and management.”Marcus Kern
“I have never seen anyone dedicating so much passion and investing so much effort in their work. Many people want to be good at their job, I think Paula wants to be the best. She somehow finds time to be always up-to-date with the latest trends and does her best to be bleeding edge with technology. She is a good team member, and probably an even better team leader. She is keen and smart. I hearty recommend her and her skills to anyone. If you have a chance, start a philosophical discussion with Paula outside the office hours – you will not regret it.”Fabrizio Sabatini

I hope we could continue our collaboration in the next year.”
“Without a doubt, the best UI/UX designer we have worked with. Paula has an obsessive attention to detail, but does not get lost in her work. Zen and mindfulness lend a very balanced approach to everything she does. On a challenging and unconventional UX project Paula applied herself even when standard approaches were not possible. This strategy makes her incredibly resilient and flexible, in the end producing outstanding results that speak for themselves.”Joshua Kopeček
