This was part of a kick-off event "A Day in the Life of a [UX Role]," where we had current practitioners present lightning talks about their UX role. The event was held on March 9, 2016 (http://www.meetup.com/exploreUX-raleigh/events/228364314/). Allie spoke about being an interaction designer.
In the coming months, we'll be doing monthly presentations that dive deeper on a UX role. To learn more, check out http://www.meetup.com/exploreUX-raleigh
