Mercita approached us with an education proposal for our company. She highlighted that she had the right skill not only from a business point of view but also showed her professional skill in teaching and treating lymphoedema.
Mercita has been “value added” for Juzo these past few months, both clinically, supporting us with complex patients and, in terms of marketing, helping us research the current market for our products.
Laterly she came to us with a new education platform which we agreed to go forward with.
Mercita shows her ability to be entrepreneurial and innovative in practice. Importantly Mercita is able to take feedback, adopt, adapt and improve.
