My name is Katie Cissell. I currently live in Ames, IA. I graduated from Purdue University with a Master of Science in Computer Graphics Technology and Valparaiso University with a Bachelor of Art in Graphic Design and Creative Writing.
I have done user experience design, usability research and some product management work as well. I currently work for Workiva on a cloud enterprise platform for reporting, data management and compliance. Previously, I worked on electronic health record and practice management software for Greenway Health.
I believe that user experience design boils down to two core things, data and relationships. You gather data about your user’s problems and the capabilities of your software. You build relationships with your users as well as your development team, product managers and fellow ux designers so that you can build a product that everyone buys into.
