Welcome, Lena! Meet Stridekick’s Newest Developer

Lena is joining us full-time for the summer as a Developer Apprentice and we are ecstatic to have her learn and grow with our team! To better get to know Lena, we asked her some questions about her interests and hobbies outside of work (and of course, threw in a speed round for fun!). We can’t wait to fully welcome her to the team.

Welcome, Lena!

Sliding into the office like…

Let’s meet Lena

What is something most people wouldn’t have guessed about you?

I play seven instruments! Also, even though I am studying advertising and work as a developer, film is my hobby.

What is your favorite thing to do?

On rainy days, curling up on a comfy couch with snacks and a great fantasy novel.
On sunny days, grabbing a Divvy bike for the day and riding along the Lake Michigan path.

What is your favorite book – why?

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho was life-changing. It’s about following your passion, and was a real eye-opener for me. I think a lot of times we get caught up in society’s predetermined paths. When you take a step back from it all, you see that someone had to build those paths in the first place, so you might as well go make your own!

Why health tech?

It’s so easy to feel great about! You can look at the feedback from users and understand that what you’re doing helps create a positive change in their lives.


Favorite app: By time-spent – Snapchat or Instagram. Personally, I’m a huge fan of “The Room” games. They’re massive, immersive puzzle games that really test your wit.

Favorite food: EMPANADAS

Favorite neighborhood in Chicago?: This is such a hard decision. I feel like I’m still in tourist mode most of the time, since I moved here not so long ago. At the moment, I’m in love with Pilsen.

Best binge-worthy TV show: Rick and Morty! Wubalubadubdub!!

Spirit animal: I attached an image 😉

Thanks, Lena! Welcome to the Stridekick family.
