What do you love most about your job?
I love the complexity and unpredictability of my job. Every day and every project is a bit different. I see the entire process from the starting phases of the concept to the physical install and production of parts. My co-workers are also part of why I enjoy being at Desma. They make work more than just a job. Having a good team to work with on a day-to-day basis makes all the difference.
How has working in the rubber industry broadened your view of the world?
I never realized what an essential role rubber had within the manufacturing industry until I had a career in rubber injection molding. It has a part in every industry from consumer products to medical devices. My career has allowed me to work with customers across the globe.
What advice do you have for students considering a career in the rubber industry?
I graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering and I never had much opportunity within classes to learn much about the rubber industry. My advice would be if your university provides any specialized courses that allows you to study polymers, I would take it. There are a lot of interesting things that can be learned about the different molding techniques and processing of rubber.
