Q: How do you feel a sense of belonging at LivaNova?
A: We can really see the impact of our work. When you see that, you feel a sense of belonging or attachment to the therapy and thereby to LivaNova. You can see in all of our communications that patients are put first. It's not just something we say, I can really feel that people live that here. And I also am convinced that other people outside of the company can actually see that.
Another reason that LivaNova feels like home to me is that as a young Ph.D. student, I realized you could detect epileptic seizures based on heart rate and heart rate variability. When I presented this, people kind of dismissed the idea. Five years later, I joined LivaNova (then Cyberonics), which had just launched the AspireSR™. It was kind of a dream come true to work here as cardiac-based seizure detection had just launched, because it was something I had worked on in experimental setting suddenly being real.
