About Me

I'm Lauren Glazer, graduate of Miami University (Love & Honor!), where I studied Graphic Design and Interactive Media Studies. I currently work at Walmart, as a Principal Product Designer focused on search e-commerce experiences, and leading all Generative AI search experiences, and overseeing a small pod of 3 designers across multiple search initiatives. Prior to Walmart, I spent 3.5 years at Amazon, on a few different teams, most recently with Alexa Shopping, where I designed Alexa experiences within the Amazon App. Prior to Alexa Shopping, I worked on Alexa Routines, where I designed an end-to-end experience for a new Alexa device capability. I started my time at Amazon with the Amazon Fashion team, acting as Global Lead UX Designer for Prime Try Before You Buy, and engagement initiatives for Personal Shopper.

Before joining Amazon, I was a Senior UX Designer at National Geographic in Washington, D.C., where I created cohesive digital product experiences across our editorial platforms, utilizing design to create a unique storytelling experience. I also occasionally flexed my coding skills, by developing and testing a variety of prototypes utilizing A/B testing methods across the site.

I'm passionate about mentoring other designers and helping them grow in their design careers as well. I've served as a board member of the Student Engagement Committee for the AIGA Cincinnati Chapter, bringing my passion for mentoring, college and the design life that comes after, to students all over Ohio. I'm currently continuing my passion for mentorship with Built By Girls.

In my spare time, you'll find me exploring the outdoors with my husband and our dog Hazel, spending time in the pottery studio, experimenting with my love of cooking, both full of gluten and gluten-free, making homemade pasta with my family, and dabbling in some passion projects like wedding invitations and creating illustrations and animations for a new video series.
