To Whom It May Concern:

It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Ms. Tina Ton. I am currently a Research and Development Project Leader with Guidant Corporation. I have worked with Tina since April 2000 on three separate projects related to endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Tina has supported these projects as an R&D Technician. Her broad experiences, attention to detail, and diligence have made her a highly valued contributor to each of these teams.

Tina brings with her several years of medical device experience. She began at Guidant as a manufacturing associate for the ANCURE endovascular implant. It was soon obvious that Tina had exceptional skills and a high level of motivation. She was trained and certified in several manufacturing areas, including balloons, catheters, implant sewing, and final line. She was promoted to R&D Technician in 2000 to support the development of endovascular AAA devices. Tina has natural mechanical aptitude and is comfortable working in a creative R&D environment. She works well with engineers and often provided feedback on designs and insight into manufacturing processes. She has supported design verification testing, equipment qualifications, process development, and process validations. She has been a co-inventor on multiple invention disclosures and patent applications. She understands the need for careful documentation of manufacturing records and test data. Tina works independently but knows when to ask questions. She works very hard and produces work of excellent quality.

In summary, Tina is a highly motivated and multi-talented individual, and would be an asset to any medical device company. Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss this recommendation further.

To Whom it Concerns;

Tina Ton and I worked together for almost 3 years and I enjoyed everyday that I worked with her. Tina is an excellent versatile assistant and very able asset. Tina was the lead person in the clean room all that time and was very well tempered, even and worked very well with other personnel she directed. Tina did her job so very well and with grace.

I urge anyone who gets the chance to interview her to likewise HIRE her. Her skills and abilities in R / D and Manufacturing of medical devices were so very useful.

When I left the clean room in her hands I never needed to worry and she was always making suggestions and improvements that were incorporated into the instructions, builds and of course final product. All that I can leave one reading this endorsement is with POSITIVE thoughts and a most Positive ENDORSEMENT of Tina Ton.

Most Respectfully
