Work with Anne

I’m an effec­tive, empa­thetic Direc­tor of User Expe­ri­ence (UX) help­ing agen­cies, com­pa­nies and orga­ni­za­tions cre­ate a bet­ter web for more than 14 years. I’m also a skilled com­mu­nity orga­nizer, run­ning events that sup­port a high level of diver­sity and inclu­sion, which is a pas­sion I bring to every role.

I’m look­ing for:

  • a full-time management/leadership role
  • focused on UX, strat­egy and/or product
  • in an orga­ni­za­tion com­mit­ted to inclu­sion, either agency side or in-house
  • remote or Chicago-based
  • with a great, diverse team

What I bring:

  • 14 years of var­ied expe­ri­ence with par­tic­u­lar focus and inter­est in non-profits, includ­ing higher edu­ca­tion, muse­ums, cul­tural insti­tu­tions, gov­ern­ment and foundations
  • exper­tise in build­ing and lead­ing effec­tive teams
  • exten­sive skill in dis­cov­ery research, user and stake­holder inter­views, insight syn­the­sis, strate­gic roadmaps, con­tent strat­egy and change management

I’ve cre­ated and sup­ported Codes of Con­duct within orga­ni­za­tions such as High­Ed­Web and Chicago Nerd Social Club. I’m HighEdWeb’s cur­rent Chair of Safety and Inclusion.

See my expe­ri­ence on LinkedIn, view sam­ples of my work or con­tact me to review my full port­fo­lio. Or just say hi on Twit­ter! I espe­cially appre­ci­ate good Star Trek jokes.
