Experience in the field
I began as a systems engineering intern with Tensentric in 2016 and started as a biochemical engineer in 2018.
What do you like about working at a company that designs medical products?
As an engineer, I am interested in solving any kind of complex problem from any discipline, but when I work on designing medical devices, I also know that our work will have a positive impact on people’s health and lives. I like the variety of medical products that Tensentric designs because I get to learn about a wide variety of health conditions and be a part of solving problems across the entire spectrum of medicine.
What hobbies or non-work activities are you most passionate about?
I love to ski! I started skiing as a toddler and was on my high school’s alpine ski racing team. I have skied in New Zealand, Australia, Jackson Hole, Tahoe, the east coast, and all over Colorado. My bucket list is to ski on every continent. In the summer when skiing gets more difficult, I like to boulder, hike, play disc golf, and hang out with my cat, Iris.
Where were you born/where did you grow up?
Not a ‘Colorado Native’ but I got here as soon as I could. I was born in Richmond, Indiana and my family moved to Colorado when I was two years old. I grew up in the mountains west of Boulder near Nederland, CO.
When you were in elementary school, what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was really young, I wanted to be a doctor, but that is just because I didn’t know that you could be an engineer that designs medical devices!
