Always a New Yorker at heart, Joanna moved out to sunny California to work on a graduate degree in translational medicine. She loves to craft human experiences that transform people’s lives and she thrives at the intersection of engineering and user-centered design. She’s excited to bring her experience in the medical device, biotech, and wellness space to SDS. When not tinkering with hardware, you can find her engineering 3D-sculpted cakes, forming strategic dances on the rock wall, hand-drawing custom quarantine cards, exploring the outdoors, playing her uke, or creating whimsical adventures with her friends and family. She is always on the search for the perfect bowl of hand pulled noodles, so please send them her way.
