Hi, I am Kathryn (or Katie), a UX designer who specializes in experience design and research. I live in the NY/NJ area. My background in psychology provides me with a deep understanding of human behavior and the mind and better informs me on making cognitive based design decisions and creating intuitive, user centered experiences. As someone who has a deep degree of empathy, I have a strong passion to help improve the lives of others—especially in healthcare, digital forensics, government, behavioral health, and finance.

I’m constantly refining my craft as well as expanding my skillset; currently, I’m focused on deepening my knowledge of design and best practices through online classes, learning front end development, working on a daily design challenges and a passion project and seeking career and volunteer opportunities. I’m constantly reading new material (always looking for some new recommendations), especially about new and challenging concepts, and enjoy figuring out ways to apply them.

Other interests of mine include fashion—I love to sew, music—I play guitar and am teaching myself violin, and just relaxing at the beach. Feel free to email me, I am always open to collaborate.
