Her work experience, which includes a diverse group of medical product companies such as Boston Scientific, American Medical Systems, St. Jude Medical, Kinetic Concepts, Transoma Medical and Medtronic, gives her an understanding of the problems faced by both large and small companies.

"Women I know are suffering in silence from stress urinary incontinence. It is a large, rapidly growing and largely underserved market that affects the quality of people’s lives. The world needs better solutions, and I am very impressed with the clinical outcomes of the work done by the original inventors in Norway and the Pelvital team. I am confident we can help women around the world to regain control of their lives," Sherwood said. "I am very pleased to be joining the Pelvital Board and to help bring this new technology to women."

"With extensive experience in direct-to-consumer and clinical marketing, reimbursement, pricing, and commercialization across multiple medical device companies, Kathy is uniquely qualified to help Pelvital transition from a development company into a commercialization company," said Dale Wahlstrom, CEO of Pelvital. "We look forward to Kathy providing guidance to the Pelvital team as we bring the FlyteTM incontinence product to market."

Kathy holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical-Industrial Engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and an MBA from the University of Minnesota, Carlson School of Management in Minneapolis.
