Hello, my name is Erica and I’m a UX Designer and advocate for Digital Accessibility.
My journey into the world of UX began with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design. I love being creative and challenging myself to “think outside the box.” A Minor in Web Design really drove my passion to the web, where I fell in love with basic front-end programming (HTML/CSS) and creating beautiful user interfaces. I’ve spent quite a bit of time delving into the latest web trends and crafting rich online experiences when I began seriously contemplating user behavior and interaction. Working closely with online accessibility drove me deeper into user experience and inspired me to purse a Master of Science Degree in Interaction Design and Information Architecture, with a particular interest and emphasis in usability research.
As I work tirelessly to finish up my last semester as a graduate student, I hope to also have a moment to share my work with you. After graduation in late May 2018, I look forward to pursuing some new challenges that I’ve had to put on hold. Stay tuned for more!
