Can you tell us more about your role and background? How did you become a 3Mer? How long have you been with the company?

Coming from a background as a medical laboratory technologist and an instructor in laboratory medicine, I was privileged to join the business as a trainer and installer for the Medlab Pathlab products. After the business was sold, I joined the 3M HIS team where I have been excited to work in many areas. Currently I am a subject matter expert for the 3M™ Core Grouping Software and 3M™ Grouper Plus Content Services products.

What do you see as the biggest accomplishments since joining 3M?

I can’t advocate enough for what we’ve accomplished and continue to work toward.

What stands out most is the wide range of products 3M has developed and now has to offer. I have watched us grow considerably over time.

Our dedication to our clients’ success is also exciting. We pay close attention to the needs of the health care industry and jump ahead of the curve to keep our clients on top of the latest requirements. When our customers need something different, we listen. We’re involved in the organizations that create new mandates and agency rules, and we deliver it all within our products.

I’ve been so proud to see and experience so many achievements over the years. When you come to 3M, you are treated with the utmost respect and courtesy and are listened to from start to finish. From sales to implementation and beyond, we support our clients.
