Kristin Helps, RN, BSN, MSNc

Kristin recently completed a Master’s degree in Clinical Informatics and Patient Centered Technologies at the University of Washington (UW). Her Master’s thesis documented the clinical use of mPOWEr by providers to inform future product development. Previously, she received BS at UW of in Neurobiology and later a post-bac in Nursing. Presently, she practices as a Registered Nurse in the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) with previous specialties in Neuro Critical Care and Trauma Surgical Critical Care.  Prior to nursing, she spent 10 years in private industry working in finance and business operations. Kristin’s unique set of skills — clinical expertise, business background and penchant for technology — made for a truly meaningful contribution to the team during the project implementation, and we were grateful for the time she spent with us.

Kristin grew-up in a small, rural area of Montana so she would rather be outside hiking, exploring or playing soccer.  Indoor interests include: playing nerdy strategy board games, brewing the perfect cup of coffee and going to eat at the newest gastropub.
