Why User Experience
My favorite part about what I do is that I get to ask people questions, like a lot of questions, about things they enjoy. When I got my undergrad degree in journalism the position I have now didn’t exactly exist. I’ve been able to adapt my interest in people and disseminating information into a career I love.
I have a special passion for digital humanities projects and helping faculty identify their audience and the best platform to display their research.
