Kara Dziobek is an Experience Designer at the Business Innovation Factory in Providence, RI where she uses human-centered design and business model innovation to transform social systems including health care and education. She is passionate about designing for the underserved, bringing communities together, and helping people & places realize their true potential. She received her bachelor degrees in Architecture and Fine Arts from Rhode Island School of Design.

With a background in psychology, design thinking, and anthropological methods, Lindsey brings an empathic point of view to her role as Experience Designer at BIF. She specializes in using contextual and co-creative research approaches for uncovering a rich understanding of people in terms of their attitudes, values, behaviors, experiences, and aspirations. These insights help to inform and inspire companies to create meaningful solutions that will connect with people on a functional and emotional level. Before joining BIF, Lindsey honed her human-centered research skills at several design consultancies where she worked on projects across a variety of industries. She also held positions as a project manager and coordinator at various creative consultancies on both coasts. Lindsey holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Humanistic Studies from McGill University and a Master of Science degree in Design Ethnography from the University of Dundee in Scotland.
