Kathryn Raymond
Engineer
ConMed Linvatec
Largo, FL


“I pursued an engineering degree, after getting an AA in Business, recognizing that I would need to get caught up on all the science and math courses prior to applying for entry into the college of Engineering at USF.  I fell in love with Thermodynamics, thus began my awesome and fascinating adventure into the world of chemistry and Chemical Engineering.”

Kathryn is an Engineer charged with product quality, process development and process improvements.  She acts as Manufacturing Lead on new products.  In addition, she is involved in cross functional and support teams where taking on the lead is sometimes required.

Kathryn manages and mentors engineers charged with process documentation, validations and verifications, capacity and capabilities analysis and product flow.  She trains operators on Lean manufacturing practices and Six Sigma.  Kathryn’s successes include her work on instrumentation for preparing tissue and bone for medical device application and the biodegradable/metal implants.

Kathryn went back to school mid career and earned a chemical engineering degree. She is extremely motivated and focused on activities within her department. She has transformed a very stagnate process to a world class manufacturing assembly area based on six sigma and one piece flow environment.
