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.
Educator: I’ve spent almost a decade working alongside faculty, students, and staff in higher ed, where I’ve done everything from designing program assessment to teaching in a pandemic.
Designer: With extensive experience in e-learning and accessible design strategies such as UDL, I am a passionate advocate for the advancement of forward-thinking UX content and design, and finding ways to make universal design more, well, universal.
Writer: I’m a talented and versatile writer proficient in researching, writing and editing diverse content, as well as communicating that content effectively and accessibly to diverse audiences.
Compulsive Book Buyer: Reading voraciously is the best way I know to become a better educator, writer, designer, and human being. Want to know what I’m reading now? Click this button for book recommendations and current reads.
