Sarah Holt

R&D Engineer
Joined SRM May 2020

Sarah’s start at the Silk Road Medical, Sunnyvale, CA office was 2 months into the start of the pandemic. She joined as the primary R&D Engineer to assist with the preparation of TEST Drive, a traditionally live training program for physicians. She soon learned that flexibility was key to being successful. Prior to the pandemic, TEST Drive was typically held in Chicago. Her traveling Bio Skills Lab team transitioned onsite training to virtual and mobile training that addressed various groups of physicians at a few selected U.S. sites. What Sarah enjoys most about her role is she prepares the demos and the cut-down models for the training and is involved in many different aspects of R&D. Collaborative team culture, ability to be a part of something larger, and the number of female engineers all attracted her to Silk Road. When Sarah is not working with demo models, she loves to travel, bake, read and embroider. She claims to bake the best chocolate chip cookies. We’ll have to find out!
