Straight from University my career started as a Biomedical Engineer and was part of a team involved in the phased commissioned of a newly constructed 72 – building Medical, Dental, and Veterinary Teaching Hospital Campus. From there I managed the life cycle of medical equipment at several major hospitals, coordinated numerous user group meetings, coordinated tenders and procurement activities, solved a major hospital crisis, developed and implemented cost reduction and safety-related policies, conducted many customized training for doctors, nurses, and laboratory personnel.
