I'm an engineer with a passion for design, accessibility, inclusion, and ice cream. Currently, improving how government serves people at Nava.
In 2017 we began to completely rebuild the HealthCare.Gov application experience that currently enables 30+ million Americans access to healthcare. Previously, the application was split where 80% of users would use the simplified version of the application that our team maintained, while the rest of users still go through a classic application with poor user experience. We've been working to completely replace the two separate applications entirely, focusing on user-centered design and thinking broadly about how to build better software to improve access to social safety net services.
In 2014, we embarked on a huge project at Vox Media to unify all of our brand's websites (8 brands, 350+ sites) under the same design system and underlying platform. In 2016, under a tight deadline, we moved one of our largest brands, The Verge, complete with an overhaul of our platform's Homepage Product and The Verge's identity. We then used this work to influence our other properties homepages.
DCFemTech is a coalition of women leaders aimed at amplifying women in tech organizations, sharing resources, and bringing leaders together to close the gender gap. We needed a centralized place to surface events and give folks resources about organizations.
In May 2016, six Vox Media team members gathered in Washington, D.C. for two days to figure out how to approach accessibility on a company-wide scale. We picked this project back up a few months later and built a tool anyone can use.
Vox Media houses 8 brands on one core platform. Previously, each site had their own custom front-end code base. We've spent the last year unifying, refactoring, and thinking of brands beyond the website.
Vox.com has a collection of thorough guides on just about any issue. I worked with a team to make it so they could be shared anywhere.
