When did you start with MedGyn? November 16, 2021
What do you like most about MedGyn? I love that everyone at MedGyn is very passionate about working together towards better healthcare for all women, and that is something that I think is very admirable. Everyone here has been very helpful, welcoming, and they truly love what they do. The biggest challenge for me was learning the products, but Larry Dolendi, the U.S. Sales Manager, really took the time to help me with that.
What motivates you at work? MedGyn, along with all healthcare professionals, all have one common goal which is to improve and help the patients. The patients’ wellbeing is what motivates me. Although I work indirectly with them, I know that I am giving healthcare professionals the products they need to help their patients.
Favorite meal or drink: My favorite food is sushi, especially at the “all you can eat” sushi restaurants.
What is your favorite season/time of year? I have two favorite seasons. I love summer because I can go golfing, go to the beach, and swim. I also love fall because of the outfits, cool weather, and my favorite holiday – Halloween.
Any hidden talents? My hidden talent is that I am a golfer. Not many people would think that I am, but I have been playing since I was eight years old.
