Professional Experience

MedPlast / Viant – Medical Device Contract Manufacturing

Manufacturing Engineer (2/16 – current position)


Develop processes and fixtures for medical device assembly and secondary processes. From proof of concept through sustaining.


Ramped up manufacturing of cord blood stem cell separation disposable. Up to 10 operators on the production line with a customer demand of up to 6,000 devices per month on the packaged device level. Defined visual standards. Troubleshot Keyence laser system, Komax wire stripper, and performed DOE on Belco Tray Sealer. Wrote protocol, report, and performed validation on new oven. Internal auditor to assure ISO 13485 compliance. Implemented UDI labeling projects.

Corpus Medical – Medical Device Contract Manufacturing

Manufacturing Engineer (5/15 – 12/15, 7 months)


Develop manufacturing processes. Design and implement fixtures, tools, and semi-automated equipment. Set-up and maintain manufacturing lines. Manage resources and schedules.


Successfully sustained an Electrophysiology 3D Rotor Mapping solution catheter for finding arrhythmia in the heart up to the packaged device level. The device was produced at a volume of 50 per week, with about 16 operators building the device (8 hours of labor per device). Improved overall company wide systems.

Modified Polymer Components – Medical Device Components Compression Molding

Development Engineer (4/12 – 2/15, 3 years)


Owned several medical device projects at a time, for various medical device customers, with various end uses, from proof of concept to transfer. Responsible for entire project from: planning and designing, to making first 5 parts, developing and documenting process, troubleshooting, pFMEA’s, managing BOM’s, validation, and ultimately transferring.

Used Solid Works on a nearly daily bases to design dies, tooling, fixtures, ect. Beta tester for Solid Works EPDM implementation. Ensured tolerance stack up wasn't an issue between tooling and material. Frequently used PLC’s to control timing in the semi-automated manufacturing processes. Used machine shop to make fixtures and die’s. Suggested DFM changes to customers. Used Design Review process to implement feedback on making the process more manufacturable. Used customer requirements to implement inspection and testing procedures like pull/tensile test, bend test, and proof test. Used Minitab to show process capability (Cpk, Ppk), suggest tolerance intervals to customers, and analyze/run DOE results. Used many coatings and materials. Some exposure to geometric tolerancing. Internal auditor to assure ISO 13485 compliance.
