Regulatory consultant specializing in CE Marking of Medical Devices and ISO 13485 Certification
Hello! I'm a regulatory consultant with 20 years experience in the medical device, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. I graduated from UConn in Chemical Engineering. I was a senior manager at several medical device companies—including President/CEO of a laparoscopic imaging company. My Quality Management System expertise covers all aspects of developing, training, implementing, and maintaining ISO 13485 and ISO 14971 certification. From 2009-2012, I was a lead auditor and instructor for BSI (one of the largest Notified Bodies). My specialty is regulatory submissions for high-risk medical devices, such as implants and drug/device combination products for CE marking applications, Canadian medical device applications and 510(k) submissions. The most favorite part of my job is training others.
