I established LKR design as a freelance business in 2000 at the beginning of my programming career at an e-learning startup. I began working as a consultant in educational technology in 2002 for a non-profit in partnership with the Boston Public Schools before transitioning into the classroom full-time teaching web design, media literacy, and digital storytelling. I taught ISTE standards and 21st century workforce skills to K12 students and delivered professional development to teachers in the integration of technology into the core curriculum. As the Director of Instructional Technology at an elementary school in the Boston Public Schools, I led the strategic planning and the evaluation and selection of education technology for the district, and designed and implemented STEM programming in close partnership with community and technology businesses.
Today, I design online support experiences for one of the world’s top 10 public SaaS companies, helping consumers learn how to use their products and services through digital self-service. I also offer web site design and K12 edtech consulting services through my freelance business, LKR Design.
I live in Boston, Massachusetts, and I have two passports that I love to use! I enjoy sharing my travels on Instagram – follow me @LisaK8R.
