What does a typical day at Arthrex look like for you?
For me, a typical day involves completing work orders submitted by end users [employees] and occasionally working on team projects. The largest project that I’ve been involved with recently is the Windows 10 migration project, which is underway. We’re upgrading every user in the company from Windows 7 to Windows 10. My role has changed over the course of the project, but I am currently working with various departments to upgrade to the new version of Windows and provide hypercare after the upgrade to prevent any slowdowns in production.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
The thing I enjoy the most is facing new challenges on a daily basis. I’m constantly learning new things through problem-solving, which keeps my job new and exciting.
What has been a highlight during your time at Arthrex?
I assist users in every department in our global headquarters building and provide remote and Helpdesk support over the phone as needed, so a highlight for me has been seeing all of the new faces over the past five years and being a part of the rapid growth.
What is the best advice you’ve received throughout your career?
The best advice I’ve ever received is to be humble, be hungry and always be the hardest worker in the room.
What do you do in your downtime?
I enjoy playing video games, watching movies (especially Denzel Washington ones), working out and pretty much any outdoor activity—some of my favorites are fishing, relaxing at the beach and camping. Also, November marked my five-year anniversary and I’m very much looking forward to taking my Trip of a Lifetime!
