A true problem solver

Christina came to Roche to solve problems. And that's exactly what she does. 

Ever since she was a kid, Christina has loved taking things apart and putting them back together just to see how they worked. That passion and drive led her to become a field service engineer at Roche.

In her role, she enjoys providing technical repairs and planned maintenance on the sophisticated products that medical professionals rely on to help diagnose and manage patient medical conditions.

Christina also serves as a first lieutenant in the Army National Guard and sees parallels in both of her organizations. "To me, what I do with the military and how I handle myself with the military and how I'll handle myself at Roche really go hand in hand. They look for you to stand up and be a leader and to have a heart for the organization itself. Just like the military, they take care of their people."

Christina Gaskins: Life as a field service engineer

To me, what I do with the military and how I handle myself with the military and how I'll handle myself at Roche really go hand in hand. They look for you to stand up and be a leader and to have a heart for the organization itself. Just like the military, they take care of their people.

Our impact

Christina feels a strong sense of purpose. The planned maintenance, service calls and customer service she provides our customers is all meant to provide medical answers for the patients themselves. "Overall, it's all about the patient."

Our culture

Christina has been impressed with the amount of hands-on training she received in her first year. The classroom training sessions, which take place in Indianapolis, give her plenty of opportunity to connect with other colleagues and be involved with three of the seven business resource groups – the Veterans BRG, the African American BRG and the Women's Leadership Initiative.

"Even though I'm a field service engineer and I'm over in Houston, I can actually still be a part of the Indianapolis family and be engaged with Roche."
