Kaitlin Murphy

Project Manager

Relevant Experience:5 years

Education:B.S Biomedical Engineering-University of South Carolina-Columbia

What is your experience in the field?

I started in the medical device field in 2015 as a process engineer and eventually became an engineering manager. I’ve worked on the development and manufacturing of various products including ultrasound probes, laparoscopic instruments, bipolar energy vessel sealers, and cameras used in minimally invasive spine surgery. I then joined Tensentric in Jan 2023 as a Project Manager.

What do you like about working at Tensentric?

It’s really interesting to work for a company that helps develop such a broad array of products. Also, everyone here is an expert at what they do, so I get to constantly learn new things and hear different perspectives to help improve my own skills.

If you couldn’t be an engineer, what would you be? Why?

I grew up wanting to be an astronaut or a doctor, so probably one of those. But I think those jobs share similarities with engineering in that you get to problem solve and help the world at the same time.

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

I would love to work on anything neurological or AI related. It seems like both of these fields are at the forefront of technology right now, so it’d be interesting to be involved in how they develop and improve over the next few years.

Where are you from and how did you end up in Colorado?

I grew up in Maryland, but I just recently moved to Colorado from Southern California. I love the accessibility Colorado has to the outdoors and I missed living somewhere that had actual seasons besides summer.

If you could join one rock band, which one would you join and why?

Gotta go with The Who. I grew up listening to them because they’re my dad’s favorite band.
