Talking to strangers is Samantha’s jam. What are their ticks, what makes them tock – this is the world she loves. Heading up User Research at Slide UX places her in the sweet spot of gathering all the juicy details, like why users never scroll down and what they thought that link meant, and sharing her analysis with her colleagues of designers who make it all better. She’s a people-person who’s happiest when all voices are heard, so Samantha also wiggled her way into leading People Ops at Slide. She impatiently awaits her next conversation with that person she never met about that topic she never thought about. Oh, and, she loves public speaking.
