Krystle Swain

Usability Engineer — 15+ year industry experience — Now full time student

I am currently taking a step away from industry to complete my bachelors of science in mechanical engineering. I have spent over 15 year working in industry on a variety of projects, products and groups. I have vast experience with medical manufacturing, engineering design controls, verifications and validations. I am a very self-motivated team player with strong communication skills. I love to learn new technologies and skills to apply to my work and stay relevant in industry. I am looking for a chance to learn and grow with a new company during my summer availability.
