Alicia MacDonald is an Biomedical Engineer working in Research and Design at Medtronic in their Neurovascular division. The devices that she works with are used in interventional and preventative procedures for stroke care. She has been in her job for a year and her favorite thing about it is the constant problem solving and investigation work. Every day is different and there is always an opportunity to improve the processes, tests and designs. Outside of work Alicia enjoys environmental-focused volunteer work, specifically trash cleanups. These cleanups feel like a tangible way to help out the community. Alicia is a curious and dynamic individual who is eager to learn from others and try to help out in the community and ecosystem.
