Hi! My name is Kylie (or “Ky”, either works) Wojciechowski, and, to answer your question, the trick to pronouncing my last name is to say “Where’s your house key?” quickly.
Now that that’s out of the way: I’m a user experience researcher & technical communicator.
I’m best at identifying patterns and distilling complex data into clear, actionable content.
I’m also interested in information architecture, content strategy, and digital accessibility.
I’m in the second semester of my first year in the Master of Science in Information program at the University of Michigan’s School of Information, specializing in User Experience (UX) Research & Design.
I’m currently working as a UX Research Intern in the University of Michigan’s Office of Enrollment Management, supporting the implementation of the Slate CRM tool.
I’m also serving as an Instructional Designer with the University of Michigan Library as part of the Engagement Fellowship Program, developing and testing instructional modules on topics in library research methodologies.
I graduated magna cum laude from Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) in May 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in Professional & Technical Writing. I also studied philosophy.
When I wasn’t in class, I served as a junior researcher with SVSU’s Center for Usability Studies & Universal Design, as a senior mentor at SVSU’s Writing Center, as web editor and editor-in-chief of my campus newspaper, and as an information management co-op at The Dow Chemical Company. (I transitioned to that role full-time immediately following graduation.)
I’m passionate about studying and working toward system usability and accessibility, and I value clarity and honesty—not only in my work, but in all aspects of my life, too.
In terms of the unofficial, off-the-record Kylie, I’m pretty simple. I read and travel and listen to podcasts. In the summer, I longboard. Other than that, I spend most of my time with my friends and family and the dogs my family got to replace me when I left for college.
