Photo of MaureenI'm a user experience (UX) and web development professional in Boston, with a Master's in Human Factors in Information Design from Bentley University. I have experience with usability testing, workflow and task analysis, heuristic evaluation, user interviewing, and both low- and high-fidelity prototyping using paper, Balsamiq, Axure, and Photoshop. In addition to my professional and educational background, I am a member of the User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA).

Before making a formal move into the UX field, I'd most recently done web and eLearning development, working on projects in health insurance, interior design, intranet, copywriting, art, and building. I taught myself HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Photoshop, Illustrator, PHP, ASP, Flash, and Captivate, and I do all my coding by hand. I've designed and implemented a learning management system (LMS) and designed a program to train managers on maintaining their learning programs for employees. Prior to this, I was a molecular biologist (my bachelor's degree is in zoology) working on projects in infectious diseases, DNA damage repair mechanisms, and cellular transport processes. My career has been all over the map!

I love learning new tools, and I thrive in an environment where I can forge a new direction in the design and implementation of a new process, system, or program.

I'm available for freelance UX projects, as well as a contract or permanent position in the greater Boston area. Contact me today!
