Current Position: Web Projects Coordinator
My job with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is to work with internal clients (i.e., DNR employees) and external customers to plan, develop and launch Web pages that communicate the work of the DNR. My focus is on information architecture, content development, usability, accessibility. On our team of four, I am the primary point of contact for our internal clients who want to create Web pages, presentations, and applications, acting as project leader on small and large projects. My role further includes keeping the team on track with regular (monthly, seasonal, annual) updates and features that need to be prepared for the site. I also am writing policies and procedures for our Web site.
