Hello! I'm the principal UX writer at Edelman Financial Engines, an independent advisor that helps people manage their retirement investments. I was also a fellow at CodeX—The Stanford Center for Legal Informatics, where I explored how user experience can impact regulated industries.
I was interested in UX writing before I knew that's what it was called, and my diverse background helped me pick up relevant skills along the way.
I've been an estate planning attorney, helping make a complex, emotionally-charged topic easier to understand (law and lawyer outputs are content)
I managed national TV, print, and digital campaigns at DDB, where I learned how content and design work together
A summer contract at Facebook on the Pages business product opened the door to UX writing
About Other Things
I'm experimenting with home bartending, molecular gastronomy, hot sauce tastings, and paper crafting.
My husband and 7-year old son keep things interesting. :-)
