If you’re wondering, my last name is pronounced SAYNT SEER. That usually throws people for a loop.
I have over 9 years experience in the content industry and am currently a Content Designer at Facebook. I’ve previously worked at Amazon, Getty Images, and Expedia in both content and design roles. Like lots of other people, I had an a-ha moment when I realized what I was doing was actually UX writing. The rest is history.
My greatest accomplishment in life is being paid to do what I love — writing. My natural inclination is to tell a story. My love for detail and organization means creating user flows and journey maps make me happy. I’ve spent a lot of time working with engineering, and I can clearly articulate requirements because I understand their world. Content audits are meditation for me. I’m a systems thinker who applies a strategic approach to user experience. I’ve always been passionate about solving problems.
I currently live in Seattle, but was born and raised in Orlando, Florida. A thirst for travel landed me on the West Coast. I studied Creative Writing at Florida State University, with a focus on non-fiction. After graduation I spent a few years in Alaska working in tourism. I was a waitress, housekeeper, and even a reporter for a small-town newspaper. I live for adventure, in and out of the workplace.
Apart from a deep desire to analyze, write, and design–I am also a mom and outdoor enthusiast (though these two can be conflicting).
