eManuals Release Administration
I manage the release of product labelling for an international medical device company. As the last checkpoint for the labelling before it is posted to a globally-accessed website, I am part of the team responsible for ensuring accurate metadata and file distribution.
I came on to the team at the tail-end of our business unit onboarding to the eManuals platform, becoming the lead for the department by the time of full implementation was posted to the site. Working within the regulatory restrictions, I further pursued the development of this department in collaboration with a centralized corporate IT team. I applied human factors principles to reduce process steps and eye movement in data entry, in turn reducing compliance risks by eliminating some of the error in data entry.
Sapien-focused engineering design
I am an amateur pilot working towards my private certificate. I have studied color theory for both its aesthetic appeal in graphic design and its applicable utility in crew cabins. These skills have led me to study and practice the fundamentals of effective human factors design.
I understand the unspoken communication that takes place in design. I know how to implement this communication within human interface experiences.
Defining and delivering effective systems
For my work as a lead field engineering technician and on each of my undergraduate projects I have applied the principles of agile development in order to adapt on the fly to change.
The most effective leadership comes from someone who has worked in the trenches; in order to interface between customers and engineering teams, you need to speak both languages. My engineering work, my sales experience around the country, and my background in entertainment have enabled me to function well face-to-face and in front of a large crowd of diverse stakeholders.
MagTag Cover for Altius Space Machines
I led a team of 5 engineering students in the development of a CubeSat cover. I utilized an adaptive leadership style to accommodate the myriad personalities and backgrounds that this team presented.
I assisted in the research of magnetic circuits, which led us to implement a design-by-testing approach that helped us define our system and the requirements by which we could verify our prototype.
My team faced adversity in the form of multiple scope changes and a massive budget reduction, but we were able to produce a prototype that exceeded customer expectations.
