UX Specialist @ LGIAsuper
App designs for iOS, Android, iPad
I started out as a Nurse for 8 years, mainly in Cardiology. I was often seen by the bed side at RBWH and in the community centres at Chermside and North Lakes co-ordinating Cardiac Rehabilitation. Although I found the job rewarding it was lacking something I couldn't put my finger on.
I decided to build 6 Minute Walk Test App in my own time as I was frustrated with the overhead spent conducting this test along with the documentation that came with it. I wanted to spend more time engaging with my patients. I taught myself how to develop and design in my spare time which eventually resulted in getting 6MWT iPhone app in the app store.
I consider my UX strengths to be Responsive Web Design, Mobile Design, Usability Testing, Agile Methodologies (Build, Measure, Learn), UX and Interaction design and Design Workshop facilitation. I am a strong advocate for baking in UX from the start and thrive when I own the UX processes within the team. I believe everyone on the team should and can solve design problems together. My design style is pragmatic (obvious design always wins), and progressive (delight the user). When I have time I work on 6MWT app and Straddie app to keep my grey matter up to date.
