Kathleen is a research and insights leader with 15-plus years’ experience in digital product development. She enjoys building research capacity from scratch and has led teams of researchers, designers, and product managers on their journey towards working insight-informed.
She is originally from the Netherlands but has lived in South Korea, Australia, Sweden, and is currently residing in France. Working across boundaries of cultures and disciplines has taught her how to work with international product development in the best possible way.
Kathleen is a known advocate for research democratization and uses this as one of many tools for creating an insights culture. Outside work, Kathleen enjoys rowing on the Seine, running after her three gremlins, and probably should be spending more time trying to learn French.
