Experience in the field
Tensentric is the first place I have worked in this field, but I was exposed to the industry throughout my undergrad experience!
What do you like about working at a company that designs medical products?
Besides being able to help a diverse group of people, I like the fast-pace and everchanging products. There is always a new problem and need for a new product.
What do you like about working at Tensentric?
The environment at Tensentric is welcoming and friendly. This promotes the collaborative nature of the company, which I thrive off - plus there are great snacks!
What unique set of skills do you bring to Tensentric?
I try and promote positivity every day in the workplace. When positivity is brought to a project, the team can focus on finding solutions rather than getting stuck on the problem. I also find the efficiency of manufacturing a product fascinating - Manufacturability is just as important as the design!
What hobbies or non-work activities are you most passionate about?
I have played water polo all my life - now I coach the DU Women’s Club team! I also really enjoy hiking, skiing, and campling - all the classic Colorado activities.
Where were you born/where did you grow up?
I was born and raised in Houston, TX (the only true Texan in my family). My parents now live in northern Minnesota, so that’s where I go to freeze over holidays.
When you were in elementary school, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be president in elementary school, but I had a backup plan of being a teacher. Discovering my love of science and helping others brought me here!
