I’m on a mission to connect people. . . online.
I help people and organizations wow their target audiences with great experiences. As a user experience (UX) designer, my skills are broad, but my specialties are:
developing UX and/or content strategy
I can see the big picture while also digging into the small details. I’ve worked on projects for both tiny startups and huge organizations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. I've also helped Lenovo, Bloomberg News, and Duke University.
Current job: I lead the UX efforts at a terrific start-up called Teamworks in Durham, North Carolina. It's likely that your favorite sports teams and athletes use our software!
Book: I wrote a fun book on content strategy in 2017. The Zombie Business Cure offers real-life examples and practical tips.
Current Passion Project: I'm exploring what a trauma-informed website would look like. I won an Aquent Design for Good grant in 2017 to help me. Resources to help you be more trauma-informed are here.
Professional Groups: It's important to contribute to my industry and stay current, so this is what I do:
• Teacher, Girl Develop It Raleigh/Durham
• Co-Organizer and Co-Founder, Ladies that UX Durham
• UX Y’all Conference 2018 Committee Member, Triangle User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA)
When I'm not working, you'll find likely me doing yoga, hiking nearby, or watching soccer.
