Kirsten Miller



Kirsten’s work combines evidenced-based research and user group feedback to create uplifting healthcare spaces for patients. She’s equally passionate about “providing for providers” by giving physicians, practitioners, nurses, and specialists the kind of environments where they feel energized to deliver the best care possible. Outside of work Kirsten often heads for the hills of northern Minnesota to hit the trails with her dog or her bike.

Woman on Bike in front of water "The photo was taken along the Gitchi-Gami State Trail in Northern Minnesota near Split Rock Lighthouse. I love biking because riding does present challenges and then you can go fast! Biking is a great way for me to push myself forward and focus on the nature around me." - Kirsten Miller
