Stefanie Koehler has an industrial design background (received her BS in Industrial Design from Western Michigan University in 2009) and has an inherent desire ‘do more good’ rather than just ‘doing less bad’. Struck by how little we address whole systems, she pursued a MA in Sustainable Design at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. She is one of the first graduates of MCAD’s newly launched MA program (2013).
Stefanie is a whole-systems thinker, an avid hand-sketcher, and visual storyteller who has served as a multidisciplinary designer, strategist, woodworker, dog trainer, and active observer of behavior. Stefanie is forging a non-traditional career path working with smallstart-up projects and consulting as a biomimicry professional.
