Our Team

Visualize was co-founded in 2013 by Julia Kramer and Maria Young. Julia and Maria, both engineering students at the University of Michigan, traveled together to Ghana how to use technology to address needs in maternal and infant healthcare. During their first trip, and their many trips in the following years, they have contacted over 100 stakeholders in Ghana - including midwives, doctors, nurses, administrators, and health officials - at more than 10 different health care facilities in the country.
