My name's Katerina Simpkins, and I'm a Senior Product Designer, with 6 years of experience in both native and responsive design, currently working at TripAdvisor. Though I started as a Web Developer, my passion has always been, and still will be, design. Transferring to UMass Lowell allowed me to explore my passions without losing the knowledge I had previously gained as a developer.
My career has taken me from a small startup where I learned about native app design to the complex worlds of healthcare and finance. I have always been driven, and I look forward to learning new things and facing new challenges every day. Design is forever changing. It’s my goal to surpass those changes and push myself out of my box.
In my free time I'm dabbling with photography, drawing digital artwork, assisting my friend with her dog training business (as a brand designer), or building journal templates on my iPad.
