As Senior Solution Architect, Vanessa gets involved early in a project with usability testing, requirement gathering and business needs assessment. She guides our clients and their projects through content workflow planning, development of site architecture and user interface design – checking in frequently during the design and development process to advocate for end-users and site administrators.
Vanessa’s background is as varied as her skill set. Before ImageX, she was an art director, photo editor, web designer and content strategist. Vanessa is also an active cancer advocate and spokesperson and has helped organize national conferences for young women with breast cancer. Vanessa has studied multimedia at the University of British Columbia, Project Management at Simon Fraser University and is a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM).
Vanessa on Drupal: Drupal ROCKS content. With Drupal, there is a place for everything and everything in its place.
Vanessa outside ImageX: “I love skimboarding, roller skating, gardening and am very interested in sustainable/green living. I sometimes get obsessed with certain colours – like Drupal blue! – and once planted an all-purple veggie garden.”
Vanessa’s typical Saturday morning: Slowly walking her suburban “back forty”, drinking black coffee and plucking weeds.
