Hillary Carey is a hyper-collaborative innovation researcher with a background in Design and Design Thinking. She spends her days researching people and their experiences, and making sense of that in order to innovate new things. She believes that engaging people in the design process (both end-users and stakeholders) is the best way to learn about ideas and to engage people in discovering their own solutions. She writes sporadically about her experiences as a design consultant and in-house innovation researcher.
