Andrea

Client Lead

What does your typical day look like?

My days are pretty dynamic — I could be preparing to lead a workshop, working on a product roadmap, sitting with research on customer interviews, mentoring team members, etc. A few things are constant every day, though: I get to solve interesting problems, I get to be creative, and I get to work with amazing people.

Michelle

Capability Lead

What makes someone successful on your team?

To me, what makes individuals on my team successful is a recognition that there is always something new to learn and always more room for growth. An open, honest desire to not only learn from your teammates' expertise, but also to share your own, is a huge part of what makes a teammate at Kin + Carta successful.
