SEP 28th– We were proud to interview MedTechVet Academy Mentor, Vorry Moon. Vorry is currently the Associate Area Manager for Abiomed in the East Bay Franchise.
While Vorry was in the Army everyday he felt a sense of purpose and knew when he got out that in order to be successful in his civilian career he would need to find an industry that could offer him a similar sense of purpose. Working with care teams to help patients recover and restore their lives fulfills his sense of purpose everyday.
What led you to become a mentor for MedTechVets?
I know first-hand what it’s like to leave a steady career in the military for an uncertain future as a civilian. I can help newly minted veterans navigate their transition. Veterans have learned many desirable skills through their service and I enjoy helping them showcase their abilities to prospective employers and go on to enjoy rewarding careers.
What has your mentorship journey with MedTechVets been like?
Since I’ve worked with MedTechVets I have been in the company of stellar individuals that I know will leave a mark on the world. The staff and my fellow mentors provide a wealth of knowledge helping veterans pursue and achieve meaningful work.
Any advice for veterans?
It’s not who you know. It’s who knows you. Leave everyone you meet in awe.
What are your key takeaways from being a mentor?
Veterans are an overlooked source of outstanding corporate leaders. Organizations like MedTechVets are doing a lot to highlight the value veterans bring to the table.
What does the future look like for you? Do you have any exciting trips planned?
I am one Spartan Race away from completing my yearly TriFecta.I will be graduating with a Master of Public Health from Dartmouth College in June.
