“Tyesha has a uniquely wonderful and powerful combination of strength and approachability. You can’t help but like her, and you can’t take her lightly. These attributes, along with her passion and confidence, suggest that Tyesha is a future leader in information architecture and UX. What’s especially impressive is not that people love working with her, it’s the way they talk about loving working with her: Tyesha fosters a sense of partnership and possibility in her teams. Everyone talks about collaborating with her, not just working with her. Tyesha’s strong work background shows. She is personable, positive, professional. She’s a great presenter. She’s confident, diligent, and effective. People gravitate to her. They want her to be on their team. Tyesha is already a sought-after contributor, and she has tremendous upside. Hire her!”

Tyesha's experience and good humor are invaluable to making The Digits. She's a great leader and has a fantastic mind for strategy.
-Scotty Iseri, Founder of The Digits
I would highly recommend working with Tyesha. She is an expert usability and experience design professional. She helped us redesign some of our key workflows to improve conversions and overall user experience. Her ideas are logical and creative (all at the same time).
Tyesha understands the constraints many start-ups face and creatively accommodates to ensure you can do as much as possible, even with limited resources. For example, she designed us a robust but cost effective focus group to pressure test some of the initial concepts she presented to us.
Tyesha was also super helpful in identifying and referring resources to complement the team, again taking into consideration our deadlines and budgets. Very impressive all around!
-Katie Vahle, Founder of CoPatient

I highly recommend her as she puts nothing but top quality work forward.”

“Tyesha is one of those few, exceptional team members that consistently knock it out of the park - her strategy is always insightful, her communication skills are superb, her documentation water-tight, and she is a tireless advocate for the user.

She worked incredibly well with the larger team and handled all client interactions with grace and skill, clients absolutely love her. I completely and wholeheartedly recommend Tyesha and look forward to working with her again!”
