If you could work on any type of medical device project, what would it be and why would you want to work on it?

I’d like to work on something for the developing world, but I don’t know how to start down that road. My grandfather died from Parkinsons’, so nerve implantables sounds cool.

What do you like about working at Tensentric?

The people here are nice, helpful, and inviting. Everyone is happy to be working here.

What unique set of skills do you bring to Tensentric?

I have formal Systems Engineer training plus I think I have some communication skills that will be useful. I can have a bigger picture view and successfully translate it to the technology staff.

What hobbies of non-work activities are you most passionate about?

I advise for a sorority and I love watching them grow. I like to cook, yoga, run, and play with my dog and cat. I’ll do anything outside at least once.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a teacher because it was what was visible to me. My parents are both lawyers - and I knew that I didn’t want to be a lawyer.
