While interning at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory as an IT-UX intern, I was tasked to work on two projects. The first was deemed the Communication Emergency Notification System (CENS) project in which I developed the UI/UX for the web app employees would be directed to when setting up their emergency alert preferences.
The other project was the Application Health Index (AHI) project. With this project, I acted as the product manager and UX engineer. Two others and myself were tasked with integrating objective data into a big data tool called Splunk and designing the dashboard interface that would live on the platform and visualize the data we had integrated. I oversaw my team and reported back to one of the senior executives every week on the project status.
In addition, I worked closely with the developer on our team in ensuring that the functionality and UX driving the dashboard experience were seamless and intuitive. At the end of the internship, we gave a team presentation highlighting what we'd been working on for the entire summer, for that presentation, I developed simple presentation material to engage our audience as we presented our finished work. My efforts that summer earned me a follow-up position as a long distance employee during the fall while in school.
