Kellie Leake
Experience Designer + Strategist

My passion is building collaborative teams and shaping
the experience of complex products and software.

More About Me

I have over a decade of experience building products, sites and applications for technology startups, digital agencies, niche markets and top tier banking institutions. I specialize in collaborating with cross-functional teams in a lean development environment and working iteratively to create and improve the user experiences of complex, data and content heavy systems. I am currently the Director of User Experience and Product Design for Appboy.

I am an advocate and practitioner of User Centered Design and believe the more collaborative and transparent the process is, the more successful the end product will be. While there are any number of UX “activities” or “deliverables” to draw upon, I do not believe there is a cookie–cutter, one-size-fits-all checklist that should be used to tackle a given project. Instead, thoroughly understanding the business drivers, customer goals, technology constraints and objectives alongside other success metrics should guide selection of UX activities, artifacts and timelines.
