Career Spotlight: Abigael Pamintuan, UX Designer at Autodesk
Are you a Faculty of Health student curious about where your degree can take you? Career Spotlight is an opportunity where you can connect with Faculty of Health alumni and learn about their career. This session’s spotlight speaker is Abigael Pamintuan.
Abigael Pamintuan is a Global Health alumna (2019) who specialized in Electronic Health (eHealth). During her undergraduate studies, Abigael became involved in the Faculty of Health as a Student Health Ambassador at York (SHAY) and as a Peer Mentor. Abigael also started a Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research chapter at York with her friends and peers. Through her eHealth courses, Abigael was inspired by learning about how technologies could impact health at the individual, community, and global level and so pursued a Master of Information with a specialization in User Experience (UX) Design at the University of Toronto. Abigael now works as a UX Designer at Autodesk working on ShotGrid, a production management tool predominantly used by studios in the film and entertainment industry. Although Abigael currently does not work in the health space, Abigael believes that the education she received at York provided her with a solid foundation in empathy and understanding, qualitative research, critical thinking, and visual and verbal communication skills - all things required in her work today. In the future, Abigael wants to pursue UX in other industries and mentor others interested in health and design. Outside of work, Abigael loves to learn about interior design, travel and sample local cuisines, and find cafes serving chais and cortados.
