What are your responsibilities at the Keller Center?
I manage Keller Center's technology initiatives, which involves investigating, architecting, and implementing electronic solutions, as well as advising our team about best practices. This includes making sure the Keller Center’s website and other digital offerings are usable, accessible and effective. I conduct usability and accessibility testing to ensure that everyone is able to accomplish the tasks that bring them to the site. Contact me with questions or concerns relating to the Center’s website or other digital offerings.
Share an inspiring story about your time at the Keller Center.
Website projects often start with extensive discovery work to understand the technical and functional requirements. Soon after joining Keller I interviewed a group of students to understand their pain points with the old site and wish lists for the new one when a student remarked, “With Tiger Challenge, you think you’re developing a product, but you’re really developing yourself.” It was a powerful moment that helped me really understand how meaningful this place is - Keller has a huge impact on students who then take the knowledge and tools they learn and practice here and help change the world.
How have you beneﬁted from your involvement with the Keller Center?
In addition to being part of such a forward-thinking organization, I have had the opportunity to learn from and share my expertise with thought leaders in a variety of fields. It has been my pleasure to guest lecture at Keller classes and work directly with student teams on their website projects. Experiencing the energy and enthusiasm of such talented students involved in such impressive and inspiring projects has been a boost for me.
