I am Chantal (Shaun-tal), a Colombian-American product designer based in Charlotte, North Carolina. I love growing and learning as a human being and a professional, and I always aim to be the best version of myself.
A mantra that I’ve carried with me from my days in the outdoors is to leave everything better than you found it.
My path to UX design has been anything but linear. I am an outdoor educator turned graphic designer turned UX designer. I have always found design to be a constant in my life from my early days of sketching Disney characters to avoid science lessons to illustrating my inspirations from the outdoors.
I love collaborating with others to create user-centered designs that make the world a better place for everyone.
I love travel, adventure, art, food, dance and family. These are some of the things that bring me joy and make life that much sweeter.
As a kid, my family made it a point to travel even if it was just to another state nearby to discover and explore new places. This became a common thread in my life that uncovered my curiosity to learn, explore and grow. Learn, from other cultures and people, explore, the beauty the world offers and grow, to be a better version of myself and make the world better starting from within.
