Previous experience

Tina has spent over 28 years in user research and human-centred design. She discovered her profession in 1993 as a management consultant with Accenture, when she was asked to join its first ever human factors team. After realising she wanted to be a practitioner rather than a manager, she launched as a freelance consultant and has since worked with companies large and small, such as Westpac, BT Financial Group, News Corp, NRMA, Optus, Athena Home Loans and Fairfax Digital to name a few.
