Amy Dutton

Senior UI/UX

I love️ teaching designers how to code and developers how to design.

I'm a Senior UI / UX designer and frontend developer at ZEAL. I have over 20 years of web experience, officially making me a granny in Internet years. I live in Nashville, TN with my husband, 3 adorable kids, and 2 dogs. If I'm not sitting in front of my computer making things, I'm hanging out with family and friends. I love streaming all the things, playing cards, reading, and drinking coffee. Lots of coffee.
