About Cheryl


I am a seasoned product professional with experience as a researcher, developer, ethnographer, and in user experience. As a documentary filmmaker, I researched, interviewed, did storyboarding, wrote papers and proposals, built corresponding websites, and edited the films. As a UX Designer, I perform these same tasks using different technologies. The marriage of the human component and technology is fascinating and mirrors the juxtaposition of quantitative and qualitative research. I’ve spent my education and career thinking about how to represent people, consider what people’s needs are, and enjoying the task of revealing these processes and people through technology.

With a graduate degree in Interdisciplinary Studies: Communication Studies (Electronic Media and Ethnography), I have written numerous ethnographic papers based on research, won awards for my ethnographic fieldwork, and have vast experience writing and in interviewing and testing. My specialties are Research, Usability Studies, Task Analysis, Storyboarding, Archetypes and Personas, Userflow/IA, Report Writing, Data Collection, Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis, and Journey and Empathy Mapping. My skills include Sketch, Invision, Adobe Creative Suite, Trello, Microsoft Office Suite, and Confluence. In addition to my UX skills, I am a competent developer and am proficient in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python, and Django. I also have some serious organizational skills, a great attention to detail, and an ability to bring teams together.

Life Coach Website


This small business website was designed to reflect the personality of the life coach- a creative and outdoorsy therapist. The different layers of the website reveal the different layers of care and opportunities to clients. I also built a corresponding blog that would allow the life coach to update her clients and write articles without needing a professional to maintain it.

Photography Website


This website features three photo galleries and uses some fun features, such as parallax scrolling, to capture the edginess of the photographer.

Psychology Website


This psychology website, though modern and clean, shows potential clients the hominess of the Victorian office. It also features a calendar and appointment maker, as well as online payments for current clients.
