Hey, I'm Kasey.

Yes, that image looks like me. Throughout my career I've helped launch many digital products into the wild, serving a few customers to millions. I've had the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with amazing people across various teams to elevate design and bring ideas to life. I've gained the reputation of being relentless on crafting quality digital experiences by way of design thinking methodologies, collaboration, building trust, mentorship, and focusing on users' needs. I utilize best practices to break down big challenges into smaller pieces to be solved one at a time. With a depth of experience and wide skill set, I work directly with leads, directors, managers, and stakeholders to influence business and product decisions. Clients and teams have come to rely on me to deliver impactful, end to end design solutions across web, mobile, and software.
