What do you like about working at a company that designs medical products?

I like advancing medicine in a way that can benefit millions of people.

What do you like about working at Tensentric?

I like the fast design cycles. The processes are streamlined so there is virtually no bureaucracy.

What unique set of skills do you bring to Tensentric?

I worked on assembly lines while in college and later supported them as a manufacturing engineer after graduating. Eventually, I was designing products that were manufactured on those same lines. These experiences taught me firsthand the impact my decisions in design would have on sustaining engineering and the assembly lines.

I like traveling with my family. I also enjoy hiking.

I was born in San Antonio, TX but grew up all over because my dad was in the Air Force.

I wanted to be the President. In hindsight, I’m glad that didn’t work out!
