Hey, I'm Kasey.
Throughout my career I've helped launch many digital products into the wild including apps serving a few customers to millions. I've had the opportunity to work with amazing people across various teams to elevate design. I've also gained the reputation of being relentless on crafting quality digital experiences by way of design thinking strategies, research, prototyping, user testing, experimentation, and high fidelity visual design. While focused on customer needs, intuitive usability, and business goals I utilize these strategies and 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.
