Employee spotlight – Meet Stefanie

Senior UX Researcher and Designer


Stefanie has been a researcher with AIM for six years. Previously, she worked with Northwestern Memorial Hospital as a CT technologist and has always been an artist. As a UX researcher and designer, Stefanie works with customers and end users to better understand their unique concerns so AIM can deliver the best user experience possible.

“After we wrap up a research study with participants, a big part of my job is making recommendations for potential improvements of our programs and portal. It excites me to know that our participants, through objective feedback, take part in future enhancements to our products. The User Experience team gold standard is to learn more about the people using our systems and what motivates them. This is why we take the time to see what leads the user through their journey and really listen to what they are telling us.”

When Stefanie is not working, Stefanie enjoys laughing with friends and family, creating art, visiting different cities, being in nature, and streaming sci-fi, British drama & suspense.


“I love learning user behaviors and perceptions in our applications through research. There’s a lot of practice and joy in listening and talking with people. I use research methods that include in-person observations, surveys, and remote feedback sessions. I guess you could say I’m an explorer at home and at work.”


Stefanie can often be quoted saying “No matter what happens, something good is about to happen. No matter what.”


User Experience Feedback Group: Get involved in making the pre-authorization process easier!

Your feedback will help identify opportunities for improvements and enhancements, such as development of our new portal Help Center. Recent feedback has resulted in enhancements and updates to our Help Center and Tutorial sections.
