Chris Hester – Associate Fellow
For innovative and passionate professional explorations; for devoting time and attention to assisting the success of professional, academic, and social communities; and for motivating others to grow their own ideas.
Chris Hester joined STC as an undergraduate English major and has been actively involved in STC since, including participation as a committee manager, academic mentor, and STC Chicago officer. Her early career experiences in high-tech environments, such as Argonne National Laboratory and Kodak Park, exposed Chris to the Internet and the beginning stages of the World Wide Web. These experiences helped deepen her skills in understanding technology evolution, change management, user adoption, and design and development methodologies. Chris believes collaboration and communication are critical tools for relationships and communities, and she thrives on learning and sharing new technologies.
