Praise for Jennifer Blatz

"Jen is incredibly passionate and well-versed in all things UX. She questioned the norm and the status quo, which was much-needed in an organization with stale patterns and processes in place.
She was one of the best mentors I have had — always involving me in UX research and design tasks on her busy agenda.
She also always made an effort to ask and to understand what was feasible in regard to technical constraints and UI design hurdles."

~ Jeff Collins
UI and Front-end Developer

"Jen was an excellent designer with a strong focus on the user. From user interviews to producing wireframes to working with developers, Jen was instrumental in shaping our applications. She was always fun to work with and brought a great sense of humor to the team!"

~ Adam Lind
Sr. Director of Software Development

"She uses her skills as a designer to communicate research findings in a professional and polished manner, which is a skill that is lacking in the DFW UX Market. With Jen's presentations and artifacts, the information was so easily consumable and actionable that our business partners had no issues determining next steps."

~ Lorie Whitaker
Lead UX Researcher

~ Wendy Moltrup
