The Faces Behind our Success

Elizabeth Kukla

Elizabeth is a full-stack engineer and product manager. She took both her BS in Computer Science and her Masters in Systems & Information Engineering from UVA's School of Engineering and Applied Science. She started her career in Düsseldorf, Germany at trivago GmbH where she worked as both a backend engineer and as an associate product manager. From there she returned to the US with LookFar Labs where she spent 4 years as a full-stack engineer, systems architect, and product owner before opening Fully Stacked. In her spare time, she enjoys running and training her ATD certified therapy dog, Dieter.

Thomas Barila

Tommy is our “Head of Business”- currently serving as our Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer. He has a degree in Finance but has found his passion in client-facing roles developing and cultivating relationships. He is affectionately known as Fully Stacked’s brain pimp, always prioritizing client needs to get them to market efficiently and prudently. Previously, Tommy worked at a startup studio and as a business analyst for a digital marketing company. In his free time, Tommy likes to golf, be outside, and pretend Dieter is his dog.

ATD certified therapy dog

Dieter takes joy in supplying office smiles and joy as an ATD certified therapy dog. Born in 2017, he has AKC titles in hunting, good citizenship, and is working towards his show championship. Dieter shares his "UX Treats" newsletter with all of our human followers and hosts "De-stress with Dieter" therapy dog sessions at our co-working space on behalf of fully stacked.
