Why did you choose to work at Simformotion?
I was initially hired to work with the team on a large military contract traveling to a different city every week which taught me so much about the simulators. I found that I really enjoyed working and learning about new technology. I enjoyed the various challenges the role offered and felt it was a great way of helping me grow professionally.

My main goal in my role is to learn how to be the leader of a team and not just manage people. However, I also always want to continue learning and developing my skills to train others in what I have learned.
Tell us about your professional experience.
I started my career in the medical field working in radiology as a radiologic technologist which taught me how to handle a highly stressful, fast-paced industry. I had to think quickly on my feet and stay calm in many situations. I had the opportunity to work with technology differently; I was ready for a career change but knew I wanted to continue in the technology sector.
What have your years of professional experience taught you? What career advice would you give someone?
Doing the hard work really pays off! I would advise those who are just starting their professional life to put your head down and work. When you’re working in a good company, hard work and dedication is noticed and will lead to good things.
