What are you most looking forward to about working for SmartTRAK? I am looking forward to providing our customers valuable insight into medical technologies and markets by combining my clinical expertise, education in economics and editorial skills.

What do you think the biggest promise of medical technology is? I think advances in computer-assisted orthopedic surgical planning is an area of great promise as well as new applications and technology in neuromodulation.

What is your life like outside of SmartTRAK? (family, kids, pets? What can we find you doing when you’re not working?) When I am not working, I like to read, do yoga and cook.
