What I do at Oaktree Products (OTP)

I am the Vice President of Oaktree Products (OTP), Inc. located in St. Louis, MO. So, what do I do? Well, I wear a lot of different hats throughout the day, making my job exciting, intellectually challenging, and fun. As a clinical audiologist, I often wear my “audiology hat” to connect with our customers, many of whom are audiologists, to offer product solutions to individuals with hearing loss seeking a means to optimize their communication. Sometimes I switch to my “infection control expert hat” to consult with various clinical practices to facilitate compliance with OSHA standards. About a third of the time I put on my “teacher hat”, spending time writing manuscripts, preparing educational webinars and presentations, or training employees or customers on a wide range of hearing industry topics including hearing assistance technology, infection control, or cerumen management. Every now and then there is a need to slap on the “business operations hat” to figure out a more efficient means to run an aspect of the business. I really love the days that I get to sport my “marketing hat”, tipping it a bit toward the right side of my brain, to create various banner ad material for the OTP microsite, establishing the look and feel of various company ads, and playing a part in all the social media madness.  Basically, I get to take my inherent creative side and pair it with what I learned in school, the clinic, and academia to do things that ultimately help my audiology colleagues do their jobs.  This job fits me like a great hat!!!
