Kaysi Profitt McKillipInsurance Administrator/ In-house Graphic and Web DesignerMid-Southern Savings Bank
After graduation, Kaysi was offered a full time position at Mid-Southern Savings Bank in Salem, Indiana where she was working as a part time teller. Her employer, knowing Kaysi’s degree was in Visual Communication, offered her the opportunity to design a logo for the bank’s 125th anniversary. This opened a doorway to many more design projects including billboards, web graphics, checkbook covers, and debit card designs. Kaysi has now been promoted to the loan department where she processes loans and audits loan documentation and continues to do creative work as well.
Kaysi’s story is a great example of finding you can utilize your skills in often unexpected places. Kaysi let her employer know that she was a designer and now she is the go-to girl when creative work is needed. By keeping an open mind and letting others know what you’re capable of, anything can happen!
The bonus to this story is that Kaysi also met her husband, Chuck McKillip, in the Visual Communication program at Ivy Tech. They have two beautiful daughters, Moxy and Daisy.
