I’m from Newbury Park, a suburb of Thousand Oaks, California.
How long have you been with TracPatch?
I have been with TracPatch since December 16, 2018.
Briefly describe what a regular day as a TracPatch Field Specialist looks like?
I usually start my day by reviewing the TracPatch portal and ensuring that the physical therapist has applied the TracPatch devices into the patient’s adhesive disposable patches (ADPs) and then I check to make sure that data is coming in. I also spend much of the day making home visits to patients in my area for the initial placement of the TracPatch devices as well as to make ADP changes. I really enjoy wearing my personal TracPatch devices to monitor for unusual activity and give feedback to headquarters. Essentially, I spend each day doing my best to represent Consensus Orthopedics in the most professional and respectful manner.
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
My favorite thing about my job is making connections with my patients and helping them have the most positive post-op experience possible.
What’s your favorite thing about TracPatch?
My favorite thing about working for TracPatch is seeing the look on people’s faces when I explain what the technology is capable of. This product is a new age tool to create a 24-hour connection between surgeon and patient.
What’s your favorite thing about working in the medical device industry?
My favorite thing about working in the medical device industry is helping people reach their goals. I’ve always been someone who enjoys making people feel well taken care of and I pride myself in having a natural knack for patient care.
What has been one of your proudest moments working at TracPatch?
My proudest moment at TracPatch was when my manager entrusted in my knowledge and gave me the opportunity to oversee the field operations while she was on vacation. I felt honored to be at a place in my career where I was able to take on such a task.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
When I’m not working, I enjoy watching and coaching my children’s sporting activities as I regularly coach basketball and soccer for my two boys. I also enjoy hiking and laying out at the beach.
What inspires you?
My children inspire me! They are by far my greatest accomplishment and I couldn’t be any prouder of the young men they are becoming. My children have no father figure and I have been given the great honor of being both parents for them. They are smart, kind, considerate and humble boys and I am so proud to be their “mama.”
If you could pick a superpower what would it be?
If I could pick a superpower, I would choose to be able to see into the future.
