Describe your role at aMDI.

My role at aMDI consists of assisting in project testing, research and development and making sure that the lab can run smoothly. I have helped run and develop new tests for our projects as well as gather data from the tests. I also work with my team members to make sure that aMDI has everything we need in order to be successful on each and every project. I have been working at aMDI since October 2016 and just recently got my new position after I graduated in April.

What made you want to join aMDI?

I wanted to join aMDI because I was always interested in the medical device industry. It was, and is such a fascinating area of work/ study and it is growing very rapidly as well. It is fascinating to see what the next big thing will be and how it can help so many people. As a Biomedical Sciences graduate I love learning how our bodies function. Integrating my studies into the development of a medical device that is also viable for human use is very engaging and allows for a new way of thinking and creativity. I am proud that aMDI plays such big role in making the lives of others better with our medical devices being developed.

Education & career trajectory before aMDI:

In college I studied biomedical sciences and was planning to be an orthopaedic surgeon my freshmen year, then I changed my emphasis to Pre-Physician Assistant Studies. I continued on with a BMS degree and received my Bachelor’s in April of this year.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years I plan on having a master’s degree in order to either practice medicine as a PA or to continue research in the medical industry. Either way, I want a career that can help people that are in need.

How has aMDI prepared you for your future goals?

aMDI has provided me a wider variety of skills from project management to biomedical knowledge and even some engineering-based skills. I have learned a lot from my time spent at aMDI. Overall, I have gained more insight into the medical industry as a whole. I know that the skills and knowledge gained from aMDI will allow me to better myself in every way.

Favorite non-work-related memory at aMDI:

I really enjoyed our last holiday party where everyone brought in a dish of their own and we exchanged white elephant gifts. I received spicy pickle mix as a gift.

Marvel or DC?

Marvel, because I like the movies better than the DC movies.
