Barbara SpantonBarb is UX Lead at Shopify, in Ottawa Canada, where she’s trying to make the path to entrepreneurship a little bit better.

Since her work on first-generation mobile apps back in the mid-90s, through several years of focusing on healthcare UX, to her recent move into e-commerce, Barb has worked both in-house and as a consultant, leading multi-disciplinary teams to solve all sorts of messy problems.

Highly active in the UX community, Barb teaches mobile design to the next generation of UX designers at Algonquin College, she co-chaired Ottawa’s wildly successful CanUX Conference for several years, and has a few other initiatives simmering at the moment.
