Jim came to lean RAQA after a circuitous career path. After a stint in the military, he decided to pursue a degree in nursing and spent the next ten years working in critical care and the cardiac cath lab. During his time in the cath lab, Jim was introduced to Phillips imaging systems and was later recruited by the company to train providers on the use of the Phillips system.
After several years on the road, Jim transferred to product development where he was able to focus his technical skills on the development and maintenance of quality system management documentation. While in this role, Jim found himself drawn to regulatory affairs, and eventually earned his Master’s Degree in Regulatory Affairs.
When Phillips closed their Florida office, Jim leveraged his twenty years of medical device regulatory experience and became a consultant. Shortly thereafter he met Michelle and was immediately drawn to the professional but fun approach she brings to quality and regulatory affairs.
Jim’s specialty is electromechanical software driven devices with a particular passion for Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning imaging devices.
Fun Fact: Jim started his career as a Sergeant in the Air Force maintaining the jet engines on fighter planes.
