Naomi Oorbeck sees herself as a bridge: she relishes the opportunity to understand users’ information needs and excels at explaining complex topics across diverse teams. She seeks out the intersection of business requirements, user needs and technical constraints, and uses her Information Architecture experience, people skills, and analytic strengths to do meaningful work with a service-oriented approach.
Before joining TUG in September 2014, Naomi spent seven years as an IA and User Experience Designer for Hewlett-Packard. Previously, she worked as a product manager of taxonomy services for a technology startup focusing on search solutions, and before that as head of reference services for the West Coast branches of a Fortune 100 company.
Naomi earned a Master’s Degree from the University of Michigan’s School of Information, where she tailored her degree in Information Architecture, and a Bachelor of Arts from Mills College in the San Francisco Bay Area.
