Leadership

2019 RMSLA Board 

Chris Coughlan Headshot President - Chris Coughlan

As Aten Design Group’s Director of Digital Strategy, Chris has always enjoyed the reference interview – it’s about understanding who you’re talking to and what information they seek. When thinking about digital, she believes a web experience expands beyond content on a page to a conversation between the viewer and the content owner. She works with stakeholders to interpret user needs, strategic objectives and content to anticipate the user’s needs before a first interaction takes place. From there, she establishes an intuitive, yet compelling structure for websites and web applications. This provides the foundation for creating an experience that supports digital conversations and findability.
