Hi, my name is

Lauren Shepherd



I am currently a UX Design student at DesignLab.


After graduating from East Carolina University in 2014 with a BS in Apparel Merchandising I found myself working for Macy's as a Visual Manager. I worked on developing my design skill as well as my management style. After 3 years I took the leap in the corporate world. I worked for Paradies Lagadere til 2020 as there Visual Merchandising Manager of Displays. Probably one of my most important experience to date,  I learned the ropes of working in a corporate atmosphere and learned to communicate effectively.  


I've always thrived in being creative and for over 8 years i’ve dedicated myself to visual design. I pull my inspiration from collaboration and expectations. Continually stepping into projects without bias and a fresh perspective. 


 When 2020 hit and I lost my job due to the Pandemic that creative mindset went on overdrive. Searching for a new path to share I landed on UX. Over the past 5 months I have learned so much about the skill sets needed to become a UX Designer. I am more than ever driven to not just learn but become a part of this growing community. 

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
