Presently, I work for a medical knitwear manufacturer known as Solaris as a Product Development Specialist. Since I began working for Solaris in the fall of 2013 I took the lead on managing fit sessions to help perfect the fit of our developing custom compression garments. Working with patients suffering from chronic swelling in the limbs has been an immense learning experience in ergonomic technical design. I have developed technical specifications for developing knit products and communicated with vendors in an effort to meet these specifications. Before my employment at Solaris I gained knowledge in patternmaking, testing materials, and analyzing various textile constructions. At this point in my career I am ready for a new challenge and to have the opportunity to grow as a designer.
