Kassie (she/her) has experience in a wide range of research roles, transitioning first from academic policy research to agency market research, and then from market research to UXR.
Today at Linkedin, she leads a horizontal team focused on creating and scaling research programs, inclusive processes and operations, up-skilling and training, fostering a UXR practice through culture and community, and partner education.
Although Kassie sometimes misses doing hands-on work, she loves being a people leader and getting the opportunity to experiment with new programs, tools, techniques, and ideas with her team. She loves a good visual metaphor and tends to think in storytelling analogies. She’s been told that she has a talent for “peeking around corners” and anticipating the future—her full name isn’t Kassandra for nothing!
Kassie loves hiking with her family, spending time at the ocean, doing puzzles, and reading.
