let’s connect!

hi, I’m Katie

Nice to meet you! I do a lot of things, but most of them are driven by my unwavering belief that a perfect world is built on access: to knowledge, and the kinds of learning opportunities that meet folks where they are and help them get where they want to be. (And also: access to unlimited coffee.)

That’s why I’ve spent most of my life – working and otherwise – focusing on learning myself, and seeing what it looks like in different contexts and for different people. As you can imagine, it takes on a lot of forms! But one consistent pattern I’ve noticed is that almost anyone can learn anything – all it takes is clear communication and thoughtful design. That’s what I’m passionate about: re-imagining the ways we communicate and design inclusive, intentional learning environments – whether that means helping college professors redesign their courses for online deployment in a pandemic or just recommending resources for friends who want to improve their weekly trivia night standings.
