user research and design strategy


    Katherine McEachern

    No action we take is devoid of hopes, fears, or worries. From the stress of saving enough for retirement to the challenge of remembering a daily medication, I have been able to delve into the psyche behind decisions both big and small. Into the “why” behind our actions and motivations.


    I have worked for startups, design firms, and nonprofits, but always my work has focused on understanding that why and then designing a solution that makes a concrete improvement in people’s lives. As a researcher and design strategist, I bring innate curiosity, deep listening, and systems thinking to every project.
