About Me | Jackie D’Elia
I work with a team of talented UX professionals.
Our team designs digital products that focus on creating delightful user experiences. We cover the spectrum of UX services including UX Research (UXR), UX/UI Design (UXD), UX content writing (UXW), and usability testing.
You can find us here at UX All The Things.
I’m always exploring new ways to improve our experience on the web and enjoy helping others do the same. I embrace continuous learning and enjoy spending time on Linkedin Learning.
I’ve spent most of my career in technology from building a small software company to creating an e-commerce business mentioned in the Wall Street Journal.
A graduate of Texas A&M University, I earned a BS in Horticulture. Yes, that’s right — the science of cultivating plants! To me, nature is the perfect combination of math, science, and design. Are you sensing a theme here?
The co-host of Rethink.fm – the forward-thinking podcast about usability and experience design.
Along with my two co-hosts Cathi Bosco and Monique Dubbelman, we discuss the positive impact we can make together through usability research and design.
Years ago, a good friend of mine started calling me “Duchess” because I liked nice things and was very independent. Later it morphed into the “Lone Duchess”, as a result of that independent streak. LOL. Fast forward, I still own the domain name.
My spare time
I love gardening. I am lucky with plants. There is a six-foot-tall Ficus Alii tree in my living room that I grew from a cutting. The list goes on.
I’m a geek at heart and a huge sci-fi fan. I love Star Trek. Time travel, warp speed, transporters, I’m in.
Organically growing food, and photographing it, I’m in.
Seems I’m always hanging out where the left and right brain meet. It’s an interesting space.
