Why I love what I do
My love of science, data, and solving puzzles led me to the field of epidemiology. Throughout a career that has spanned the laboratory, pharmaceutical industry, healthcare, and now disinfection products and services, I have always focused on what I can do to improve the lives of others. Working for a company like Tru-D, and now PDI, where protecting patients and making healthcare and communities safer is at the heart of everything, makes going to work every day easy. I know that I am contributing to the effort to prevent infections and improve lives and am working with a talented team of individuals all working towards the same goal.
