Tell me a little about your background?

I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Elmhurst College in Illinois, and I originally wanted to be a DPT.

Why were you interested in Medical Sales? What drew you to this industry?

During my experimentation to find a career path, I came across medical device sales while observing orthopedic cases in the OR, and I absolutely feel in love with the field.

How long did you try to get into the industry? What was that experience like?

My experience was a little different compared to other classmates of mine from MSC, because I took the course while still working to complete my Bachelor’s Degree. My official search lasted about 4 months during my last semester of school, and I was hired just before finishing, so that I could start immediately.

How did you learn about Medical Sales College?

I originally was working for a medical device company selling spine products, but the company went under and everyone lost their jobs, so I did some research in hopes to get information about an educational program to make myself more appealing to a hiring manager, and came across MSC. I think it was the best decision I could have made for my future career.

Did you have any fears about attending the School? What were they?

No. I was more excited because with my Kinesiology background, I was able to quickly grasp and apply my knowledge to the lectures, quizzes, and assignments.

What ultimately made you decide to attend the College?

I wanted to become more appealing to a hiring manager and be more eligible for a future position in medical device sales.

Describe your experience once you began training with Medical Sales College.

It was very smooth. I made a lot of friends, who I still keep in touch with, and it was just a very open, friendly environment, which allowed anyone from any background to pursue a valuable education and preliminary exposure to the medical device world. I think for the most part, it just allowed me to expand my knowledge at the time, and see all of the amazing opportunities and possibilities out there. I wanted to continue learning more and more, and basically, that’s what the job is: continuous education
