Quality Assurance & Regulatory Affairs
Quite recently, I moved into a Europe Middle East & Africa (EMEA) role as a Quality Systems Manager. In this role, I am responsible for setting up regional market and logistical quality processes and I am managing a team of six quality specialists who support the EMEA region with the setup and implementation of quality processes.
I have I a Master of Science degree in International Business as well as a master’s in Health Policy, Economics and Management. I started at Medtronic as an associate quality engineer in 2011 and I have gradually moved into more senior roles, like a team leader role and not too long ago into a manager’s position.
What I enjoy most in my role, is the fact that we work with a very knowledgeable team. Together, we find solutions to improve our quality system. As a team, we have a direct impact on improvements within the company. Quality for a medical device company is so vital, it is nice to represent this department and be part of the bigger wheel of serving our patients.
The inspiring mission which drives us all, makes me proud to work for Medtronic. I like the feeling of working for a big company that adds value to society.
Attending my first patient event seven years ago, where you could really see what the impact of Medtronic is on the life of an individual patient. This really made a huge impression on me.
