As web developer with almost 20 years experience, I have worked on a variety of platforms and technologies across multiple vertical markets. These include healthcare, finance, real estate, non profit and e-commerce.
As project lead I am able to visualize projects at a higher level and extend my knowledge across multiple teams. This has also allowed me to gain more experience in Agile and Scrum as well as mentor team members. Being a lead involves working with the team to gauge skill sets, plan project timelines and assign resources.
I completed a Masters of Science in Human Computer Interaction at DePaul University in 2018. Both in class and professionally I have worked as a UX specialist on many projects doing wireframing, user research, usability testing and expert design reviews. I have created a UX monthly meetup for employees within the company to learn more about UX topics, discuss design challenges, and tune their usability awareness.
IoT is the next area I would like to learn more about. I have worked on a class project designing a mobile app for a pet feeding device.
