What do you enjoy the most about being part of the Verathon team?
I enjoy the journey we are on at Verathon. The Verathon 7 values are at the heart of everything we do. We have an unbelievable team of talented people in a company with a people-oriented culture that focuses on always getting better. I couldn’t ask for anything more.
 

What are you most excited about for Verathon’s future?
Global healthcare systems are rapidly converting from reusable to single-use products to improve patient safety. We are well positioned to take advantage of this seismic shift. Today, we are leaders in airway management, and we are on our way to becoming the leader in single-use bronchoscopy. We also have our sights set on expanding into other high-growth single use endoscope markets, so I believe our future is very bright. I am proud to be a part of this transformation that will help our customers deliver the very best possible patient care.
 

How would you describe the perfect weekend?
The summers are hard to beat in Seattle. Hanging out on Lake Washington with family and friends swimming, water skiing, grilling, and enjoying the wonderful Pacific Northwest weather is where you will usually find me. If not on the water, I am hiking and biking in the Western Washington mountains. In the winter, which can be wet and cloudy, I head for the mountains to enjoy downhill and cross-country skiing at Crystal, Stevens Pass and occasionally Whistler.
