Hi, I’m Katie, a Bioprinting Consultant   in  the US at CELLINK. I have a pretty diverse background— a mix of design, science, and customer service. I am passionate about doing work that improves health and therefore changes lives, and I think bioprinting has huge potential to do just that.

 

I get outdoors as often as possible—hiking, kayaking, biking, and camping are some of my favorite activities. I used to say volleyball, but due to many years playing sports and having bad genes, my knees have deteriorated. I’m hopeful bioprinted implants will be an option in my lifetime. The possibilities are truly exciting!

 

 1. If you could have one super power what would it be? To stop aging.

 

2. What was your dream job as a kid? My dream job was to be an architect, but after getting my degree in Industrial Design I realized I was no designer. ( LOL).

 

3. What’s one thing that people would be surprised to know about you? I used to not understand why people had pets. I saw no need but my (now) husband introduced me to his dog Hudson, who is a very scary looking but beautiful white shepherd. I fell in love to the point that we now have another white shepherd puppy.
