Welcome Tyler McManus, UX designer, to our web development company!
Originally from Fair Haven, New Jersey, Tyler moved to St. Louis to study design at Washington University.
Upon graduation, Tyler worked for a local urban farm through AmeriCorps VISTA, coordinating education programs and events.
"I loved working with students but wasn't fully satisfied," Tyler says. "I wanted to fully devote myself to a creative profession."
When her VISTA program ended, Tyler and a few other artist friends went back to the East Coast and organized an art show featuring 50 different artists from across the country. They donated a part of the proceeds to Pure Vision Arts, a specialized art studio and exhibition space for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and intellectual or developmental disabilities.
"That experience reinforced how much I love doing creative things," Tyler says. "I also worked on a lot of the web projects for the event, which got me excited about tech."
When Tyler returned to St. Louis, she connected with Ed, who, Tyler says, "really took a chance on me." The rest is history! Tyler joined the best St. Louis web design team at the best agency in the galaxy and has been crushing it ever since.
"I learn so many new things with every project, which has been really cool," she says.
If you ever drive by our web development company's office at night and see some lights on, that's likely Tyler. One of her favorite things about working at Integrity is staying at the office a few hours later than most people, as evenings are when she feels most productive.
But the biggest challenge about working at Integrity?
"There are too many snacks here that I want to eat!" she says.
Outside of work, Tyler loves yoga (though her broken foot has put a damper on that passion for the moment). She also loves using her hands to create art, doing anything from making ceramic pottery to knitting and embroidering. And whenever we see a foreign-looking bottled substance in our office fridge, we know that's Tyler's homemade kombucha!
We're so excited to have Tyler here!
