Emily Lawrence spent the first half of her career as a children's book editor specializing in picture books. It was in this field that she discovered the power of visual storytelling. After learning more about the production side of the publishing business (aka HTML and XML), and serving as a lead in a content management systems build, she decided to combine her various expertise and pursue a career in user experience design.

When not conducting user research, synthesizing data, and developing clean, efficient user interfaces, Emily likes to pursue creative endeavors without reading the instructions first.
