About Me

HF_B&W_Orig (1).jpeg

Hello! I'm the first and only UX writer at Financial Engines, an independent advisor that helps people manage their retirement investments. I'm also a fellow at CodeX—The Stanford Center for Legal Informatics, where I explore how user experience can impact regulated industries.

I was interested in UX writing before I knew that's what it was called!

  • 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 learning brush lettering and like doing zentangles. I love party board games (Spyfall is awesome!) and am looking forward to the release of cooperative game Betrayal Legacy this fall. Casual baking is my vice.

My husband and 6-year old son keep things interesting. :-)
