About Me


Hi there,

Nice to meet you! My name is Aona. I am a UX researcher living in San Francisco, California. Currently I work as a UXR lead on next generation Google Search experience.

Aside from being a full time UXR, I am also a video creator on YouTube (@AonaTalks) where I make educational videos about UX Research and UX career tips. It's been an incredibly self-fulfilling journey and I feel very grateful to have been connected with so many talented UXRs all over the world. I am also proud to call myself a "UXR influencer". 😝

In November 2020, I officially launched my private 1:1 UXR career coaching service and have since helped many aspiring UXRs successfully transition to the field and land their dream job. You can learn more about my coaching offerings on this site. Thank you to all who have trusted me and supported my small but mighty business venture! 

For questions and business partnership inquires, please contact
