Kathy Davies

Kathy teaches at Stanford University, where her students use Design Thinking to design cutting edge products and to reshape their lives, at Stanford and beyond. Kathy has worked with Arena since 2007, as both Validation Manager and Product Manager, and now as a contractor. She has a background in mechanical engineering, product design and medical device manufacturing, so she likes variety. When not coaching Stanford students on how to ideate, prototype and iterate, Kathy likes to come up with her own product ideas and craft innovative software solutions. Her not-so-secret agenda? To empower people to be their best creative selves by spreading the Design Thinking tools and to use those same tools herself to make stellar products. Kathy’s other big dreams: To convince everyone to drive less and walk and bike more…to teach her daughters science and fractions through baking…and to help Arena take over the world of PLM.
