about me

Tara Sudweeks Willgues

I'm an IT veteran of two decades' experience in the online world. I've worked for companies small and large, and in many different environments.

I have had experience working in government and in the financial, telecommunications and healthcare sectors. Throughout my career, I have been a graphic artist, a webmaster and now specialize in front end development with an emphasis on UI / UX Engineering.

Please note - all of my most important and long-term projects regarding UI/UX development have been on internal software / web projects, and as a result I cannot show my work online. I am happy to bring my portfolio and work examples to an in-person discussion, and I can talk about the project in broad generalities online, but am bound by non-disclosure agreements and so cannot show the graphical progression of my work on the web. Please check out my Fidelity Investments and Verisk Health Case Studies for more discussion on my process and work in the UI / UX field.

I love making things better!
