Hello! I am an Experience Design Director and strategist with over a decade of experience working with clients and their business and consumer customers across the insurance, retail, professional services, financial and multi-industrial verticals (to name a few). I believe that great products and design decisions are made when you are identifying and solving the right problems and driven by data, empathy, and insights. I am trusted to deliver by teammates and stakeholders alike, and lead by example, I'm flexible-but-steadfast, customer-focused, and an expert in my field (who always has more to learn).

Personally, I'm a lifelong Chicagoan who enjoys skee-ball and other games that essentially involve aiming straight forward (bowling, darts, you get the idea), yoga, mezcal, and very fantastical constructed environments (think: tiki bars, Disneyland, and even wax museums). 

Some of my very kind teammates have said some nice things about me over the years:

She’s a sponge for information and is always willing to help & share with those on her team. No ego. Hella smart. Great team member. Client loves her.
Thanks for challenging our client, for knowing when and how to push on them, and for acting as such a strong lead for the combined team, our client's users, and the solution as a whole.
To Kelly for always being a leader & getting your hands dirty with the team. You make everyone want to be better!
