Jessica Floeh is a design research consultant helping healthcare organizations improve patient experiences by applying the human-centered design process.
With 28 years of experience living with Type 1 Diabetes and 10 years of experience in design research, Jessica has learned that healthcare is stubbornly human and designing for it should be as well. She is especially passionate about addressing the socio-psychological side of chronic illness through design intervention.
From start-ups to non-profits to large corporations, Jessica is honored to have collaborated within talented healthcare innovation teams — recently as Lead Healthcare Experience Designer at Intel. Her fashion accessory line for women using insulin pumps, Hanky Pancreas, earned her accolades from The Mayo Clinic and Core77 as well as many opportunities to exhibit and speak internationally.
Jessica holds a MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons The New School For Design.
