Hello! My name is Kelsey Klemme and I am a UX designer based in Los Angeles. I have a background in entertainment and digital media and have worked for shows such as Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, The Voice, DSM Living, and World's Funniest Fails. I have also worked with tech start-ups such as ROLR and Linksee and with the digital publication American Link Magazine.
My approach to user experience is to constantly advocate for the user’s needs. I received my bachelor's in Communication Studies and Political Science from The University of Iowa where I learned about human behavior and what drives people. My fascination with human behavior led me to formalizing my interest in user experience at General Assembly in Los Angeles. I completed their User Experience Design intensive where I learned the tools and process behind making great products. Combining those two educational experiences has allowed me to listen to and understand people to deliver them phenomenal experiences.
I also perform improv, watch my beloved Hawkeyes (sometimes) win football games, cheer on the Blackhawks to another Stanley Cup win, and avoid the kitchen to prevent fires.
I am currently looking for opportunities in the Los Angeles or Chicago area. I am open to remote opportunities and am also currently open to taking on clients. If you are interested in talking further, please [contact me] to chat!
