About Edmund Optics / Meet the Team / Katie Schwertz

Katie Schwertz

I love that I get to work on different products, applications, and ideas all the time. It's a constant challenge to find the best solution for a customer's application while still being a feasible product to design and manufacture. I enjoy being exposed to a variety of aspects of a project like interacting with vendors, determining timelines, making decisions about tradeoffs between cost and performance, and problem-solving throughout the whole process.Right Quotation Mark
