Department VIP – Meet Paul Kang
Paul Kang, Storage and Implementation Supervisor Paul Kang has a degree in biology and served as a medic in the United States Army. Today, he uses his background to implement new systems and programs in Ovation® Fertility labs so that we can bring the joy of parenthood through innovative science.
How did you get into your line of work?
I went to college to study biology from 2011-2015. After I graduated, I joined the United States Army as a medic, which is how I got myself into healthcare. After leaving the Army in 2019, I moved to Las Vegas.
When I was applying for jobs there, Ovation really stood out as a great company with a powerful mission. I interviewed and got a job with Ovation Fertility Storage Solutions.
I worked in Storage for about two years before I transitioned into my current role in implementation with Whitney Baker. I was excited for the challenge of learning and growing into a new role, and I still feel like I learn something new every day, which keeps things interesting for me.
What’s an average day like for you?
It’s definitely busy and requires me to balance different priorities. There’s a decent amount of travel with my position, as I assist Whitney with implementing new systems and programs in our labs. Ovation is growing quickly, so I also spend time training new hires. In addition to my work in implementation, I also still do a little bit to support Storage. I’m never bored!
What’s your favorite part of working for Ovation?
I really enjoy my coworkers and all the different people I encounter at Ovation. It’s a very diverse company with people from different backgrounds who live all around the country. It’s great to learn from everyone and get to know them better.
Why is Ovation’s work so important?
For a lot of people, their biggest goal in life is to start a family. I’m happy that Ovation can help make that happen when people have trouble conceiving.
Also, the research from our labs is collaborative, which hasn’t traditionally been the case in this field. It’s great to see our labs put their heads together to increase success rates and improve patient care.
What do you like to do outside of work?
When I’m not working, I enjoy a card game called Magic the Gathering and playing video games. I also really like exercising to stay healthy and active.
