Ava is a recent graduate of Western Michigan University's Product Design program. Growing up she was always finding new ways to make things. Whether it was origami, jewelry making, leatherworking, or knitting, she found herself constantly in pursuit of acquiring new fabrication methods. She choose Industrial Design because she loves how it allows her to use her critical thinking skills in tandem with her creative skills. Specifically, she is extremely passionate about the impact of medical design. Ava is thrilled to start her Industrial Design career at Stryker Medical in June 2022.
