  Karen Ng Program Manager   Originally from Brooklyn, I moved out to sunny SF to join Google as a UX designer. Before becoming a designer, I was a business development analyst and at one point, a paralegal. Outside of work, I enjoy going on short hikes with my corgi and perusing the aisles at bookstores. Hexagon combines a few things I'm passionate about – UX, women's representation, and mentoring!
