What do you enjoy the most about being part of the Verathon team?
My role at Verathon means that I interact with a diverse group of people, across many business functions, countries and cultures. Because of this, I find that I learn and grow every day and that no day is ever remotely the same. It’s a continually fascinating learning process and one that exposes me to truly remarkable, inspirational colleagues and customers.

I am excited about the potential for expansion and people growth in the team. Bringing new and talented people into the organization, as well as watching and helping those already here develop in their careers. We continue to build a great place to work, and I am looking forward to the many opportunities that are ahead of us.
How would you describe the perfect weekend?
Living on the South Coast of the UK, the perfect weekend is time spent outdoors with friends and family, playing tennis, walking and SUP surfing. During the winter I try to head further afield to the Alps to enjoy my long- term passion, snowboarding.
