Bio

Current Role at Stanford


As a senior UI/UX designer and information architect with Lane Medical Library, I design and develop UI, information architecture, and new features for the Lane main website (http://lane.stanford.edu).

I oversee a number of projects related to the main Lane site as well as a number of subsites, lead our website updates, and also advise library staff on best user practices. As part of managing these projects, I work with a range of Lane staff members, assigning resources, developing work structures, tracking completion, and handling exceptions and obstacles as quickly as possible.

I am responsible for various library print publications from liaisons' handouts to oversized posters and Lane exhibits. I work closely with Lane and IRT staff and help maintain School of Medicine and Stanford University brand standards.
