Where is your spot in the JagNation?
I am a Perioperative Services Biomedical Technician in the Adult Operating Room. I have a wide scope of job duties on a broad-spectrum scale. I troubleshoot and repair equipment. I also coordinate with Biomed and vendors for repair assistance. I oversee all projects and repairs being done in the OR, work closely with Facilities and contractors. Also follow up after work is completed. My short legs cover a lot of ground across this campus daily, ranging from the R&E Building, Receiving Warehouse, Biomed, L&D, CHOG OR, Central Sterile Reprocessing, just to name a few.
How long have you been part of JagNation?
Since January 1994.
Most interesting thing about your job?
My job rotates very differently from day to day. I could be surplusing unwanted equipment one day, and deal with a broken computer or surgical equipment the next. Prioritizing is vital because sometimes, many problems happen at one time.
Favorite thing about JagNation?
In the beginning I felt a strong since of belonging. I knew that this was the only job for me. I have a work family and close friendships all across JagNation.
Wife Monica and two 4-legged children: dog Lucky and cat Bootsy.
Going to concerts, hiking waterfalls, watching movies, landscaping.
Something the JagNation does not know about you:
KISS is my favorite band and covered bridges fascinate me.
How has COVID-19 changed/affected your job?
The amount of operative cases has been lower (until this week). This has given me time to catch up on things that needed attention.
