I have spent a majority of my 15+ year career as a User Experience engineer in the healthcare technology world. My product development experience includes anesthesia machines, a critical care ventilator, two electronic surveillance applications, and electrosurgical generators. I'm a Product Manager wanna be and a fan of "Jobs to be Done" theory.
Through this experience I have developed a strong passion for identifying and understanding the problems that clinicians and other healthcare professionals experience with their technology on an everyday basis. Ultimately, I want to help great teams build great products.
My education includes a Master’s in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin that focused on Human Factors in Healthcare.
When I'm not working you will most likely find me outside: running, skiing, on a bike, or hiking on a mountain trail working on my landscape photography skills.
