I'm a Designer, Researcher, and Strategist.

Hey, I'm Kaycee! Currently, I am a UX design, research, and strategy consultant at Cooper supporting companies in managing and expanding their product and service offerings and crafting great experience from conceptualization through development and beyond. 

Previously, I worked in-house at companies like The Climate Corp and Scottrade to develop their research and design practices.  


I'm an Educator.

I  also teach and mentor rising star UXers. Through workshops and training, I've taught a variety of different UX topics including services design, research techniques, UX design, and creative ideation.

I enjoy mentoring new UXers through Springboard.

I also provide one-off sessions through RookieUp. If you are interested in a 1:1 session, check out my RookieUp page for details and availability. 


My Philosophy.

My design philosophy is human - centered and business focused with a competency in and love for technology. It takes a stable balance of user, business, and technology needs to create a great, sustainable experience. With an MBA, I have a solid foundation in business practices giving me a unique and valuable perspective on the business aspect of product design and service design.
