Matthew Greig is an Associate Product Specialist with the Neurosurgery business. Having worked with Medtronic for 7 years, Matthew says “when you live and breathe Diabetes every day it’s easy to be disenchanted with managing sugars. Having a great network of people to look out for you makes it so much easier.”
In 2015 I suffered an injury to my leg and spent hours in the hospital recovering. During this time, I witnessed the great work that healthcare professionals were doing and felt I wanted to be a part of it. With my skillset in the sales and marketing, I looked to the Medical Devices industry and never turned back.
Over my seven years at Medtronic, I moved around and ended with the Diabetes business in Canada where I lived for a couple of years. I really enjoy working with different products at Medtronic which truly make a positive impact on patients’ lives.
Outside work some of my hobbies include baseball, skiing, and spending time with my daughter. I’ve never let my Diabetes dictate things that I can or cannot do. Sometimes it requires a bit of planning, but I will never let it stand in my way.
I am fortunate to have a supportive group of family, friends, and colleagues who are always on the lookout for me and my Diabetes. When you live and breathe it every day it’s easy to be disenchanted with managing sugars. Having a great network of people to look out for you makes it so much easier. It’s often as simple as someone letting you know you are looking a bit pale or checking you feel ok.
