Getting to know me

Hi, I’m Melissa Chavez.

I’m passionate about communication design, navigation, and accessibility across digital and physical spaces.

A little about Melissa Chavez, a user experience (UX) designer

I’ve worked with nonprofits and social enterprises to improve their public-facing communications. From website content to newsletters and blog posts to social media, I help brands share information in a thoughtful and engaging way.

I also organize events, conferences, and meetups. These have included:

  • PyCascades, a rotating Pacific Northwest Python conference
  • National Lawyers Guild, 2018 annual convention
  • PyDX, a regional Python conference
  • Portland VegFest, a plant-based lifestyle convention
  • Open Source Bridge, a 4-day tech conference

Check out some of my writing on these subjects.
