3D Systems – Healthcare
Katie—who developed the company’s Virtual Surgical Planning (VSP) capabilities—began her efforts at Medical Modeling in 2008 and has taken on roles of increasing responsibility since the move to 3D Systems in April of 2014. Katie is drawing on her considerable experience to lead 3DS medical device development and sales and manufacturing activities, which include VSP, anatomical modeling, medical imaging and modeling, design services and direct metal printing services. Katie, who has been involved in 3D printing for almost a decade, aims to revolutionize Healthcare by combining proprietary and powerful workflows in a “digital thread” with the ability to create templates, guides, instruments and even implants using 3D printing technologies. Katie received her undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Missouri – Kansas City. She then continued at the University of Missouri – Kansas City where she received her Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. She has published over ten manuscripts in scientific/clinical journals, co-authored an upcoming book chapter and she speaks frequently on her area of expertise in personalized surgery nationally and internationally.
