My name is Kelsye, and I am a strategic designer working at the intersection of community, creativity, and change. Building on my experience in graphic design and communications, as well as my studies in nonprofit management and organizational development, I use a creative, cross-disciplinary design lens to address challenges within communities and organizations.

Areas of Expertise:
