Notable quotes from Windy’s interview:

I was a big nerd. It’s ok, it served me well in the long run.

We should be challenged almost daily or else things can be stagnant.

We need to start teaching our pediatrist students about chronic wounds, and wound care.

Everything that enters into the market and has validity and efficacy is a game changer.
