Mrs. Jahn Richardson is a successful user experience designer, currently employed as a UX/UI Design Director for DiD in Ambler. She also serves as head coach of the Wissahickon High School’s FIRST Robotics Competition Team 341, "Miss Daisy" – ranked one of the top robotics teams in the world. 

As a young girl in elementary school, Ms. Jahn Richardson had an interest in computers and design, and later got involved in the high school robotics team. After graduating from the team in 2003, she returned as a mentor for the team and took over the role of head coach in 2013. In her tenure as head coach, she has led the team to win countless awards at competitions and serves as event coordinator for the team's annual off-season competition and fundraiser, Ramp Riot, which began over 20 years ago.

As head coach of the robotics team Ms. Jahn Richardson exposes high school students to the variety of STEAM fields; inspires them to become better citizens and make a positive impact on our world; guides students on the proper use of video production equipment, photography equipment, and graphic/web design/video editing software; conducts instructional software and technique-related seminars; guides the team culture of inclusivity and learning; and recruits and manages a staff of coaches and mentors with a variety of different backgrounds. Wiss Nation is grateful for the positive impact Ms. Jahn Richardson has on our students and our robotics program.
