I started off as a business analyst, and I've also worked as a developer. Now, as an automation leader, I love what I do because I have the opportunity to lead a team in solving complex problems through the use of technology. This frees up our employees' time employees to focus on their roles in creating and delivering medical devices that are saving or improving people's lives rather than administrative tasks.

When I started as a citizen developer, I loved knowing how a person thinks and approaches a problem or a task, and then seeing how an automation might do it differently. An automation could solve the problem exactly like a person with a mouse and a keyboard, but often it produces a smarter way to solve the problem that's far less prone to error.
