Felicia was born and raised in California amidst the technology explosion of Silicon Valley. She contemplated following in her mother’s footsteps as a nurse and began her studies in biology while working for a tech company. She shifted her major to public health education/social marketing and graduated from Hunter College in New York City.
After working in marketing for the March of Dimes, Felicia joined Abbott Laboratories as an Electronic Drug Delivery Systems Specialist to initiate the introduction of PCA (Patient Controlled Analgesic) devices. While technology has been part of her roots and she confesses to being a “geek”, it is the expansion of opportunities that technology provides for human beings and demystifying gadgets for end-users that she enjoys.
Over the next 15 years Felicia worked with Intuitive Surgical, SurgRX and Medivance to bring robotics, nano-technology and therapeutic hypothermia into healthcare standards of practice.
Felicia and her husband Joel moved to Falls Village in 2005 and she is currently employed by Northwest ConneCT as Project Coordinator for a fiber optic broadband and mobile communications regional initiative.
