Getting to know me
Hi, I’m Melissa Chavez.
I’m passionate about communication design, navigation, and accessibility across digital and physical spaces.
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.
