Time Machine Project
Consulting Project with ezGov
Internship project to bridge communication gap due to distance, time zone and cultural differences between ezGov's European and American headquarters. I used contextual inquiry to interview cross section of employees in both Amsterdam and Atlanta offices to discover work practices, communication methods and cultural differences. I used affinity diagrams to compile themes, goals and ideas from the qualitative data to develop a prototype for a "smart" employee intranet directory.
Healthy Aging in Place in Rural Communities
I conducted preliminary background research and did ethnographic-style fieldwork in senior centers, assisted living facilities, caregiver support groups, fall prevention classes and churches in rural North Carolina. I worked with the Hoke County Department of Health to set up health-promotion classes at two Spanish-speaking parishes which will hopefully start once the COVID-19 crisis is over.
