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
