I'm Julia, a UX Researcher and Designer with a background in nonprofit management.

Helping frustrated clients navigate inaccessible websites and applications motivated me to switch careers. 

Now, I help organizations create accessible, user-centered products and experiences to engage their communities and customers.

About Me

In a decade of nonprofit work, I've helped thousands of people understand and convey information. From planning a conference to fighting a high bill, bad design often made seemingly clear communication difficult.

We can do better by following inclusive, user-informed design practices.

While I loved working with community members, I switched careers to UX to have a broader impact on more people.


I'm particularly interested in accessible research and design and improving experiences of makers and crafters.

I'd love to hear about your next project and how I might help. Send me an email and we can chat!

Note on Accessibility:

I am committed to providing accessible experiences for all who use my projects, including this portfolio. However, I am still exploring best practices and methods for building inclusive websites and am still bringing this site up to standards as I learn. I am continuously working to improve my skills and appreciate any feedback by email.
