Nancy Knettell, Founder and Principal at Signet Medical Systems, LLC, has over 30 years in combined mechanical design, software development, and systems engineering experience primarily in the medical device industry as a Software Verification, Validation/Systems Engineer.
Along with her senior level management experience with cross-functional program teams for major companies such as EMC and United Technologies, Nancy has also consulted to major medical companies such as Smith and Nephew, Philips Medical, CR Bard, Kollsman Medical, Applied Biosystems, Deka Research, Avedro and Hologic.
But, for Nancy, involvement in medical device development is a personal issue. Having lost her father at an early age to heart disease, she now wants to work to help other people facing such life threatening events. It is her mission to advance the potential for life-saving medical devices through the use of quality based engineering systems.
