My story of hardwork and dedication

When I received my full scholarship to study Computer Science I grabbed it like nobody can take it away from me, I was 15 years old. How did I get the scholarship? I graduated in High School as the Class Salutatorian competing with other 5,000 students. Philippines Senator Richard J. Gordon gave every top student in my city a chance to go to college and learn more about technology.

For nine years, I designed and developed UI and Visual assets for web, mobile, and intranet pages. I'm a design producer turned Head of Design and managed a team of passionate designers for SaaS platforms.


Today, I am a Senior UX Designer at Avanade. I help shape the overall Global IT Experience vision and roadmap for Avanade. I use Design Thinking approach and UX Design skills to create art that leads to possible solutions and a better approach to WX Workplace Experience.

My attention to detail, hard work, passion, and meticulous creative thinking process have led me to deliver high-quality code and design for web pages and web applications. This path led me through a multitude of disciplines for customer service, visual design, web design, and development. I collaborated with my team with low-ego and always ready to consume constructive feedback and turn them to better results. Exposure to different areas of the company— engineering, design, and brand & marketing has put me in a position to be a hybrid contributor.

I found success in life, but I never stopped learning. I continue educating myself by reading, training and getting certified in areas that I am passionate with. I have been recognized as a creative thinker with a broad view of technology, a leader, and a team player. Integrity is my best friend, and I always believe that doing the right thing leads to better results, empathy, and strong customer service and relationships. Courage is deeply embedded in my core, and I am not afraid to tackle challenges in life and my profession.

Proud woman in tech,


P.S. Here's what people say about me

Management

“Niquee is a tremendous talent and a hard worker. If I had a project that needed to be done quickly and done right she was my go to person for the job. Niquee was able to balance managerial tasks and personal production well, even though she always had a full plate she was constantly producing results.”


Jerad Ellison
Sr. Account Executive

Results-Oriented

“Niquee is a creative, highly adaptable, resourceful and results-oriented producer. Her work as a visual communicator demonstrates a great eye for the right design to communicate a message with clarity, impact and meaning.”


Katrina Agustin
Sr. Web Engineer

Strategy to Execution

“One key attribute that I remember about Niquee was her ability to accomplish any task that we set for her in the domains of UX, design (web and non-web), branding, and marketing. Niquee also has the ability to move from strategy to execution and generally act beyond the scope of a role as needed, enabling her to add significant value up and down the value chain.”


James Lewis
Sr. Technical Program Manager
