Colleen’s discipline in industrial design and natural-born stubbornness causes her to constantly question the world around her. She loves to challenge others, while also encouraging diverse opinions to come up with innovative solutions. Colleen’s work strives to create designs we latch on to, not just because they are easy to use, but because they create impact, improve experiences, or make a difference in people's lives. Creating meaningful impact has led Colleen to find her niche in Medical and Healthcare Design. She hopes to continue to create impact in this field after graduating.
