Katie Pang

Product Designer, Nerdwallet

Redwood City, USA

I really enjoy speaking/mentoring new designers to help them through their journey, as I have walked through that similar path. It's a journey that requires lots of support and mental endurance. My background is quite unique, I was in a couple of industries prior to design from sales to customer support. Coming from a sales background, I gained empathy for the business side of the product and the strategies needed to effectively communicate. With a customer support background, I gained knowledge in user research strategies. As a product designer, I currently focus on our design system as well as being the subject expert in data-driven design.
