“Being part of GMED North America. and as a certification project manager in the certification department /non-active medical device unit, it allows me to continue my journey as a medical doctor by helping patients as I make sure that their safety always comes first when we certify innovative and high-risk medical devices.

I’m looking forward to seeing GMED NA grow and see myself growing with it as I take the next steps to reinforce my knowledge and enhance my career.”
