About

Hi, I'm Kat. I'm a design strategist with a background in industrial design by day and an instructor at night.

I have five years of experience designing for Fortune 500 companies such as Pampered Chef, PepsiCo, Chevron, P&G, and AB InBev. I care deeply about enabling everyone to use design to meet their own needs and serve their communities. I am an instructor at Offsite, where I teach both novices and experienced designers methodologies and how to present their ideas and themselves.

I am an advocate for female-centric design within the design community and within the design process itself.  I sit on the Women In Design Committee for the Industrial Designers Society of America and lead the charge for IDSA Chicago's Women & Design Conference in October of 2018. I am the Chair of IDSA's Chicago Chapter. I have spoken about democratic design futures at a range of conferences, including the International Design Conference.
