I'm currently a Senior Web Designer at University of Florida Health, a nonprofit academic health center that encompasses a group made of hospitals, physician practices, colleges, centers, institutes, programs and services mainly in Florida. I design websites and build Wordpress themes for our large user base (we manage over 600 sites), as well as help to build and maintain our organization's robust intranet with over 44,000 users.
Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of working both in client services and as an in-house creative. Before starting with UF Health, I worked as a Visual Designer at Mobiquity, a client-services company that specializes in app design and development. My primary role was as an Interface Designer, and within that role I grew to lead the design organization in Material Design education, led initiatives to bridge the workflow gap between designers and developers at the company, as well as helped to foster a community within the development organization of the widely dispersed workforce. I also created user flows, performed user experience research and testing, developed acceptance criteria for our QA team, worked with server architects to define server calls, and worked directly with clients to strategize and iterate on design solutions.
I have created digital experiences for clients like Reebok, The Weather Channel, Zumba, CVS Health, Under Armour, Weight Watchers, Johnson & Johnson and more. I have also helped small business owners as well as social media personalities, professionals and creatives like Liz Meghan, Victoria Sanchez-Lincoln and Leila Dylla to get their work and businesses online. I've worked with startups (Feathr, Starter Space, Roomsync, Verigo and others) and small companies and have consulted on how to implement design ideas, leverage social media in genuine, interesting, and engaging ways, and establish design culture.
I recently co-founded findaprotest.org, a platform that connects people who are interested in getting involved in activism with events in their area, with Autumn Doughton and Dave Stanton. Find a Protest is the first step in the process to building a larger platform that will give users more effective tools to support and connect with causes they're passionate about.
