About Misty

By day, Misty is a User Experience (UX) consultant to nonprofit organizations, heading up a design and content consulting group at Convio. After years as a writer, editor, techie, and planner, she founded the UX consulting group in 2007 to help charities figure out how to present their cause online. Informed by a Master’s Degree in Information Architecture and experience consulting with hundreds of nonprofits large and small, she’s passionate about supporting organizations in using the Web to effectively build community.

By night, Misty is a featured contributor for Role/Reboot, an online magazine about gender issues. She also co-chairs the board of Birth Roots, a parenting-related nonprofit that’s changing the world – one new family at a time.

By both day and night, she’s mama to a young son, resident of South Portland, Maine, and freelance consultant on issues of life/work balance.
