Vega,-PatriciaPaty Vega-Trautman graduated from East Tennessee State University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree in Marketing and Economics.  For nine years Paty was the Regional Manager at GC America before launching her career at Henry Schein in 2013 as the Regional Manager at the Wisconsin Center, “Corporate dentistry is growing tremendously in this region, but one thing that remains the same are the Midwest values and positive attitudes the people in this area possess.”  Paty is a hands-on leader who helps her team create efficient plans that will benefit everyone, “I love being a Regional Manager because I’m given the opportunity to coach and provide my perspective. Conducting Practice Analysis reviews with the reps is also very rewarding because we’re able to create a roadmap for our customers and sell them the products they actually need.”

Paty is not only a devoted Henry Schein Team Member, but she’s also a devoted wife to Mike Trautman and proud mother to  son AJ, “It’s very important for me to have a healthy balance between my career and family.  I moved to the United States from Mexico on a full college scholarship for tennis when I was nineteen years old and I learned to be independent during this time.  Throughout the years I have built my career and now have a family of my own.  I know that it’s possible to be a good mother and wife and have a successful career.”

Paty surrounds herself with individuals who have charisma, leadership skills, and persistence “I admire my ninety-one year old Grandfather’s optimism and zest for life as he continues to work every day with a smile on his face.  He’s a leader with charisma and a perfect example of someone who successfully balances work and family life.”  Paty strives to live by what her grandfather and parents instilled in her “My father taught me to get along with others and I credit my mother for my good work ethic and mothering skills.”  Paty stays true to her family and her career and exemplifies the proverb, “Enjoy life to the fullest and give your best at everything you do.”

Paty leads by example and admires others who are honest and hard-working leaders like Kerry Straine, “I have observed Kerry working with my husband Mike over the years and the way he communicates with doctors is like no other.  He is an expert at analyzing the business side of dentistry.  Recently Kerry present a seminar at my Center and numerous doctors said it was the best dental seminar they have ever attended!”
