Experience in the field

I began working in the medical device field in 2017 with Medtronic. I held two positions there: Post Market Vigilance and Test Engineer, doing System and Verification & Validation work in Research & Development.

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

I love being able to affect and improve patient’s lives and quality of treatment as well as the methods and tools available to aid health care personnel. I am able to help both the patients and caregivers – two very deserving groups.

What unique set of skills do you bring to Tensentric?

I have a very technical biomedical engineering education that gives me a broader understanding of the medical technology field. My specialty in tissue engineering gives me greater background skills in a quickly developing facet of medical devices. In addition, I believe I have strong communication and organization skills to help facilitate the work and discussion between the high-efficiency teams at Tensentric.

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

I love to explore outdoors with my husband and collie, as well as spend time cuddled up with a good book. All three of us also enjoy projects in our home and garden.

When you were in elementary school, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be an attorney, like my Dad. Then I realized that while their work could greatly benefit people’s livelihoods, they did it through pushing paper. I wanted to have a more active role.
