Briefly describe what a regular day as a Field Manager looks like?
Each day is a little different. An average day can include back to back calls managing the sites to jumping on a plane for same-day meetings with our Field Specialists, Patients, Surgeons, and Facilities. One of my main roles is to ensure each specialist and placement site, throughout the US, has the support and resources they need to have a smooth and memorable experience with TracPatch.

This review confirmed that not only is TracPatch a sensational device that aids in recovery, but in partnership with the Field Specialists, TracPatch provides each patient with compassionate and attentive face-to-face care.

I love to sing! I also enjoy cooking and creating plant-based recipes. I’m a homebody and spend most of my free time exploring with my Fiancé and our puggle.

I’m inspired by my family and providing value to others’ lives.
If you could pick a superpower what would it be?
This one is tough. I would say Omnipresence. If only I could physically support each specialist nationwide and enjoy all of life’s activities at home simultaneously.
