She and a team of designers relaunched the site and increased web traffic by over a 100 percent. In order to truly understand the user’s experience, she was responsible for the analysis of all site traffic which included measurement online (analysis of web logs, online surveys) and offline (focus groups, phone surveys and other field studies).
