Hi! I'm Kelly and I'm a Product Designer living in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. I help brands and businesses define their vision, understand their user needs, define their goals, design and test prototypes, and launch delightful products.

I'm a product designer with Google and have designed experiences for the Google Home app, GPay enterprise, Google Nest (legacy), and Meet/Duo. Outside of designing, I put my energy into supporting the next generation of Designers. I've previously served on the Board of Directors of AIGA San Francisco, taught coding foundations with Girls Who Code and coached emerging designers with DesignLab and Hexagon UX. All of my mentees have found careers in product design. In a previous life, I worked in public relations and marketing with a focus in product promotions for global enterprise software companies.
