We have sad news to share with our UXPA family. Josephine “Josie” Scott, long-time UXPA member, died of breast cancer on December 25, 2020. Josie was a frequent attendee and presenter at UXPA conferences, as well as being active with the local UX community around Detroit, Michigan. She retired a few years ago and left a lasting legacy of mentorship and friendship in our community.
A bio from a few years ago read: “She specializes in user experience research: facilitating customer “ah-hah!” moments and synthesizing their insight into digital solutions. Before her career in user experience, she administered Michigan elections and continues to promote better user experience in voting and civic life. Her master’s degree in Information Management and Communications from Walsh College complements her Bachelors in Journalism from Michigan State University.”
Her daughter, Brianna Selke, and husband Brian P Selke will share more information soon.
