Hi! My name is Stella, and my mission is to bring human-centered innovation into end of life healthcare.
I draw upon a background in psychology to bring empathy and human-centered approaches to my work. I am fascinated with learning about people in their environments and leveraging that context to inform meaningful innovation. Most recently, this has led me to strategy, discovery, and iterative work in product development as a UX researcher.
I enjoy working on complex challenges that keep me on my toes about assumptions and enable me to generate solutions to help others with disparate realities from mine. I started my work with expert users, tackling the challenge of capturing tribal knowledge in software and ensuring data-driven insights are provided at the right time and place in their work. I now seek to bring that commitment to underserved patients and caretakers in the death and dying landscape.
In my spare time, I let my hands take free reign in my art and music. I love collaborating, participating in jam sessions, experimenting with new art mediums, and creating art pieces to bring joy to other people.
