Damaris Flores loves learning. Teleflex has fed her passion for learning since she joined the company in 2004.
Damaris joined Teleflex right out of college, applying her engineering degree in the quality function as a document control specialist. Over time, she advanced into supervision and eventually transferred into product engineering. Today she manages a team of seven employees who support manufacturing of anesthesia and respiratory products.
Damaris likes that her job offers her the chance to learn something new every day. Beyond work experiences, she had taken advantage of formal learning opportunities, including earning an MBA focused on productivity and quality. She has a Six Sigma black belt goal in her sights next.
Damaris enjoys that every day brings new challenges. She is glad she found her way to work in a medical device company when she began her career. “It’s motivating to know that the products we make are helping people have a better quality of life,” she said.
