About – Resume


Hi there! My name is Katie Carlton and I’m a passionate problem solver who utilizes strategy and user experience in my design work. Outside of work, I am spending time reading, playing field hockey, or hiking the Colorado mountains with my Australian Cattle dog, Luna. I enjoy having a change of scenery to help with creative innovations in my work and brainstorm out-of-the-box solutions.
