I've worked with many brilliant talents, and I look forward to working with many more.
Here's what I can offer.
I champion innovation, guiding teams in line with company visions. With a balanced management approach and a diverse design background, I've cultivated and led Product Design and Multidisciplinary (UX/UI, ID, Marketing) teams, driving strategies that amplify business goals, elevate the user experience and uphold a high level of craft.
I run design thinking workshops and guide your team to understand customer concerns, generate ideas, and help validate the ideas. The outcome helps you make confident business decisions and construct the right offering.
I hone the foundational systems of your product, drive solutions for new challenges, and work closely with cross-functional group leaders. Together, we strategize and execute thoughtful, user-centric experiences to elevate your brand.
With a proven track record of launching 9+ connected devices, my dual expertise in industrial and product design ensures a user-centric, seamless experience. I work alongside industrial designers, map user journeys and flows, and create high fidelity wireframes that define the experience.
Leveraging a deep understanding of human-centered design and strategic user research practices, I offer a tailored approach and comprehensive UX audits that prioritize real-world impact. With a commitment to understanding customer needs and behaviors, I bring expertise from guiding large-scale initiatives to enhancing product usability.
Over a decade of taking products from 0 to launch. Check out some of my work.
A design leader with 15 years of experience shipping innovative user-centric products that solve complex business problems and redefine industry norms.
Beginning my career at a disruptive invention startup, I transformed the industrial design process into interactive digital experiences and created the flagship product, Pivot Power. This foundation sparked my transition into the digital-physical product realm, and subsequently into designing digital products, reactive to real-life experiences . Now, as a design leader and product strategy consultant, I use my multidisciplinary background to address complex problems, guiding teams to create experiences that challenge business norms and redefine industry standards
The brain behind our most successful subscription product.
"Worked with Kate for 5 years, she was one of the first few employees at Kangaroo and practically built the entire product suite, mobile app, websites and packaging. She was the brain behind our most successful subscription product and single handedly run and executed everything, including our UI/UX, CRM, Industrial Design and creative teams. She built Kangaroo, and is like a cofounder to me.
Not hyperbole when I say she is brilliant. I would work with her anytime, anywhere. "
Co founder & CEO at Kangaroo
"Kate and I worked closely together for 1.5 years at Kangaroo. She is that rare talent who understands business, physical products design, and software designs all equally well. She has her original approach to design, avoiding obvious answers while staying true to the needs of the customers and business, in a way that broadens everyone's ideas of what's possible.
One quality that I appreciate most is her unique ability to see above the confusion and conflicts between business needs and user needs to design the best solution - whether it be a UX flow or an entirely new business model.
I highly recommend Kate."

Co Founder & Lead Designer at Saxton Brothers
"I worked with Kate at Quirky and have since tapped her expertise multiple times as I've grown and developed my own business. She's my go-to brain to pick and has helped me with everything from experience design to UX web audits.
