With over six years in UX strategy, mixed-method research, and design, Daria dedicated her career to enhancing user experience in B2B2C startups and large enterprises. As a Lead UX Researcher and Designer at Agile Design Studio, she pioneered the UX Research department, and hired, educated, and evaluated UX roles. She blends creativity and analytical problem-solving to serve the growth of companies since her career in restaurant management. Daria led UX when SparkMeter made the top energy innovative companies, increased user engagement for Indeed and Canyon Ranch, sustained Cardlytics’s Dosh and Venmo acquisition, and reduced operational costs for Cisco and Connected Dealers. When Daria is not in the UX, you can find her hiking, painting watercolor, or playing Darbuka.
