Breanna and Greg’s paths crossed serendipitously in the spring of 2023. Breanna, a nurse scientist with a passion for revolutionizing the hospital experience, and Greg, a brilliant human-centered designer driven by a desire to make a meaningful impact, shared a vision of merging technology with healthcare in a way that brings light to an often-dark time for millions of patients and families each year.

Their chance encounter led to almost daily brainstorming sessions, deep personal reflections, and even joint families photos – it is the Family Room after all! Together, they’re crafting a groundbreaking health tech product aimed at transforming the way healthcare is delivered in the hospital environment.
