I am a designer and user experience researcher passionate about patient-centered approaches to health care. I believe that users should be at the front and forefront of every decision made in healthcare to create meaningful change.
I graduated from Stanford University in 2018 with a B.A. in Human Biology and a concentration in behavioral science and health design. I have spent that last four years exploring different intersections of design, human behavior, and health, striving to create spaces for compassion and cooperation while elevating the patient voice.
I have been extremely lucky to have amazing opportunities working with Stanford Medicine X, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, EngagedIn, the Palo Alto VA, and other organizations towards this goal. My senior year, I co-founded a three-month long design challenge called Disrupt Diabetes (read more about it here!), which aimed to bring patient partnership to diabetes innovation.
When I’m not in front of wall covered in Post-Its or talking to patients, you can find me in the middle of an impromptu dance party, curating Spotify playlists, or trying to improve my photography skills.
