What’s the most interesting Medical Device project you’ve worked on and why?

The fluorescence microscope because it was the first medical instrument I built. I was proud to work on it because of what the product does, although I do enjoy working on all of them.

What do you like about working at Tensentric?

The people and work I do. I work with the best group of people you could ask for. I’m also very proud of the projects I get to work on because they can make a difference in helping others at some point.

What unique set of skills do you bring to Tensentric?

The quality of my work and organization is exceptional.

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

I’d be an actress in Hollywood. One of those funny ones.

If you could go back in time, where and what time would you travel to and why?

I’d go back to the 1800’s to experience how they lived and to meet some of my family I never got a chance to meet, although I wouldn’t want to stay there.
