This is my portfolio and everything in here is my work, but I believe collaboration is key.
I've worked in small start-ups with just 4 people, and I've worked in huge organisations with close to 96,000 employees.
Whatever the size of the organisation, I never work in isolation. Every piece of work listed here will have had input and influence from some of the amazing people I've worked with over the years.

I've worked in multidisciplinary teams doing agile delivery on individual services, and across entire portfolios of products.
I work with many other people in their roles, including Designers, Researchers, Developers, Product Managers, Architects, Test Engineers and Stakeholders, and across various communities in larger organisations.
A lot of what I do is about bringing people together and breaking down silos. I organise and facilitate community meetings, workshops and training sessions to make sure services are designed consistently and built to the right standards.
I design interactions, content, visuals, maps and blueprints for products and services.
I've assessed the design on over 40 services at GOV.UK Service Assessments, to make sure they are designed correctly in line with the GOV.UK Service Standard, and that they use common patterns, components and best practice wherever possible.

User Journey Maps
Summary : for User Journey Maps
Some of my work on user journey maps. They are similar to Service Blueprints but focus more on qualitative insights gleaned from user research. They feature actions, moods, pain points and quotes.
I work to embed accessibility in User Centred Design across large organisations. I've built communities, practices, and lead on accessibility strategy, implementing best practice, training and support for product teams.
I work with Directors and Deputy Directors to implement accessibility strategy, set Objective Key Results and define Key Performance Indicators.
I work with product teams, senior stakeholders and communities of practice. I run meet-ups, workshops and training sessions to make sure accessibility standards are understood and adhered to.
I worked to create the 'Accessibility Specialist' job role in DWP and collaborated with other departments to define it as a Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) role in Government.
I designed, built and maintain the DWP Accessibility Manual, and I give talks regularly on the topics of accessibility, inclusion and neurodiversity.
