Faces of Salvia

Meet Brian, our technician

"I know how an implant can change your life, and I want others to experience the same impact.”

Brian Smit, an all-round technician at Salvia BioElectronics, smiles as he recounts his unconventional path to the company. "In May 2020, I learned about a company that helps people with migraine through an implant, which intrigued me because I have two cochlear implants because of sudden hearing loss." Curious, he opted for a personal visit rather than a formal letter. His approach worked, leading to ongoing communication and eventually a job offer in research and development. "I wanted to prove that my handicap is not a disability."

Brian, who studied mechatronics at ROC in Leiden, found a perfect match for his skills and interests at Salvia. "I go where I'm needed. I've really grown with the company over the past few years. I find that very cool." And 3D printing is now both his hobby and part of his job.

Beyond his technical role, Brian is a social dynamo and a driving force behind Salvia's Social Club. "Socializing with colleagues is very important. Not only is it fun, but in stressful situations, knowing the person behind the role helps to separate the two." The Social Club plays an increasingly important role in the company, organizing events such as pub quizzes and Dungeons and Dragons nights - also one of Brian's hobbies. "Salvia is growing and we want to make new employees feel more at home."

Brian nods approvingly when asked if he feels at home at Salvia, "I'm far from done. I want to keep learning, from soft skills to technical skills. And I can do that here." His personal experience with an implant fuels his desire to share its transformative potential with others, stating emphatically, "I know how an implant can change your life, and I want others to experience the same impact."

Page Title (H1)

Header (H2)

A subheading or chapter heading (H3)

Introductory text or a first paragraph of information on this subject. Write as naturally as possible and be nice and specific. If necessary, use AI software to help you get started, but definitely don't use it one-on-one. Search engines can penalize AI content.

Subheading (H4)

Here too there is more than enough room for a good story, an interesting article or background information. If necessary, use a summary:

  • a summary is clear
  • one can see the benefits or features at a glance
  • also use search terms if necessary

Another topic (H3)

Another subheading (H4)

Do not use a Title Header (H1), but use an H2 Header instead. An H1 is actually a title of the page and may only appear once on a web page. The H2 is a kind of chapter and the other headers (H3 to H6) are subheadings and subheadings within the chapter. The order is important for the readability of visitors and search engines.

  1. a summary is clear
  2. one can see the benefits or features at a glance
  3. also use search terms if necessary

This way everything remains easy to read and understandable for the reader. People can also scroll directly to the topic they are interested in.

Paragraph heading style (H5)

This is another example of a heading. The headings H5 and H6 are usually used as paragraph headings, each with their own style.

Paragraph heading style (H6)

In the editor you can really see a difference in font size of all headers, but on the live website they have their own style.

Other options

Use a "quote". That looks like this:

This is a quote!

You can also put texts in bold, italic, etc.
Of maak een link naar een andere pagina of website.
And finally, you can also create Superscript(1) and Subscript(2) text.
