Our Students

Sami Packard

Sami Packard

Experience Design Consultant,
Kaiser Permanente


Sami puts design thinking into action, driving purposeful change and innovation for Kaiser Permanente. Sami was drawn to MSLOC by her desire to apply design thinking more broadly. Through the program, she deepened her understanding of how to use design principles to influence human behavior in business. Sami facilitates a design thinking workshop nearly every week and runs a training session for 100 employees every February. Sami says, “Northwestern prepared me for my current role of helping companies unlock the full potential of this generational workforce.”

Tamika Pumphrey

Tamika Pumphrey

Principal, Head of Learning and Coaching,
Karrikins Group


After starting her career in marketing and product development, Tamika found that “people are the most complicated and interesting pieces of [her] work, so [she] shifted her consulting focus to change management initiatives.” Through her work in MSLOC, Tamika learned how to act as a coach to guide organizational leaders by meeting them where they are and taking them to the next level. She helps client reframe what they’re seeing as disruption – a corporate acquisition or new regulations have made their business model invalid – as an opportunity. That’s language and technique Tamika says she didn’t have before Northwestern’s program.
