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.
Boston.gov Content Management System Improvements
I contributed accessibility guidance, comparative research, and Sketch prototypes to a team project improving employees' experiences.
Tough Mudder iOS App
I was the project manager and created wireframes for a team assignment developing a conceptual app.
Case Study Coming Soon
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, UX/UI in resource access, and improving experiences of home-based 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.
