My Writings. My Thoughts.

The Joint Commission

// April 15th, 2010 // No Comments » // Photoshop, UI Design, interface design, web design, wireframes

UI Design, navigation and content management of a large healthcare application. I funneled content from a large team of managers and analysts. Content was stored in a shared Excel document that was easy to manage and update. Constructed wireframes and navigation elements. I also designed highlighted areas for instructions, helpful hints and additional sidebar elements. Using JQuery, I used Expand, Toggle and hidden/visible sections to separate content and guide the user through the application process.

Unitarian Church of Hinsdale

// May 25th, 2009 // No Comments » // Graphic Design, web design

Since 2005, I have maintained the website and monthly newsletter for the Unitarian Church of Hinsdale (UCH). I am a member of the UCH Green Sanctuary committee which recently was formerly awarded Accredited Green Sanctuary Status by the Unitarian Universalist Association. This process was all volunteer work done over
a period of 4 years. I helped create signage, websites and display boards for fund raisers, membership events, community-led services. I have provided signage and staffing booths at fairs. I have written and spoken at services about earth conservation, environmental issues and children’s religious education. Finally, I have participated in community organization programs to recycle electronics, styrofoam, catalogs/junk mail and an energy audit.
