Professional Experience

SEI Investments

Experience Designer April 2005 - Present Philadelphia Pennsylvania United States

I work closely with our business's marketing departments to manage the UX and Accessibility strategies for our public-facing website. I coordinate with multiple technology teams on integrating user experience methodologies and visual design practices into established development lifecycles, bringing in a user-centered perspective on our digital product design.

I coordinate the strategies with stakeholders, frame problems, facilitate workshops, conduct user testing, and produce a range of UX deliverables to make informed design decisions - including everything from personas, information architecture, content hierarchy and user-flow documents to wireframes, style guides, hi-fidelity prototypes and stakeholder presentations.

As part of SEI's Design Thinking Team, not only do I help facilitate the design process among cross-functional products and teams, but I also contribute to the internal design thinking curriculum and multi-week training sessions for coworkers with a wide range of skills and roles.
