Briefly describe what a regular day as a TracPatch Field Specialist looks like?
A day as a Field Specialist usually starts with checking my phone to make sure I haven’t missed any texts or calls from my patients during the night. I also check the Healthcare Provider App to see which of my patients have already opened their Patient App and make sure everything is running smoothly for them. Afterward, I check for any emails, review my schedule, pack my supplies and head out to my scheduled appointments. I especially enjoy all the wonderful conversations I get to have with my patients. They often tell me about the great experiences they have had while using TracPatch and I love that I have the ability to provide them with quality care and technology that motivates them throughout their recovery process.
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
My favorite thing about my job is meeting new people almost every day and sharing in their happiness as they move forward through their recovery.
What’s your favorite thing about TracPatch?
My favorite thing about TracPatch is the support I get from my manager. She always makes us feel that she puts the field team first and that kind of support can be hard to come by.
What’s your favorite thing about working in the medical device industry?
I have always loved working in the medical field. Working with a device like TracPatch is wonderful because it has opened my eyes to the intricacy of post-operative care. I love working in an industry where each professional involved truly cares about the outcome of each patient.
What has been one of your proudest moments working at TracPatch?
My proudest moment working at TracPatch was having the privilege to be a part of the very first meeting we had over the summer and getting to meet the whole team in person.

When I’m not working, I usually like to spend time with my family and friends, my dogs and doing anything adventurous outside.
What inspires you?
Knowing that I’m going to do something that benefits someone always inspires me no matter how challenging the task may be.
If you could pick a superpower what would it be?
If I could choose a superpower, I would choose the ability to fly. It would be way more fun than my commute.
