Jina Ryu

Jina is a mission-driven designer with roots in healthcare and academic public health research. She graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a B.A. in Public Health Studies.

Jina discovered her passion for civic design during her time as a patient advocate at a community health clinic, where she helped patients apply for public benefits. Seeing firsthand their frustrations while navigating online applications and also seeing how much of a positive impact public benefits had on their lives, led Jina to pivot from pursuing a career in medicine to civic design. In her free time, Jina enjoys going to the beach and checking out new restaurants with her friends.
