An Australian-Chinese transplant in New York City, Cara broke into content design in early 2021 and has fallen in love with the field ever since. She first started writing professionally as a freelance travel blogger in Japan, then moved on to be a marketing copywriter at a NYC crypto firm. It was at this crypto firm that she learned about UX writing and content strategy.
After a month of self-study on the subject, Cara landed her first full-time UX writing gig consulting for a commercial bank. She's actively growing the content practice at her company and even led her own UX writing course recently! Cara's pumped to pay it forward and help others break into content design.
