Lee Paulding has a long history with SMC. He was born here.
SMC’s Biomedical Engineer, Paulding trained in electronics while in the US Army from 1973 to 1976, then entered the electronics field after he completed his service. In 1982, Lee transitioned to biomedical engineering and worked at Methodist Hospital in Philadelphia. He came to SMC in December 2017.
Paulding specializes in ventilator repair and performs maintenance on medical devices — often at a moment’s notice — excluding radiological equipment and laboratory analyzers.
He is an avid hunter and fisherman and routinely goes salmon fishing in upstate New York. He has a large garden where he grows tomatoes, peppers, herbs and many other vegetables, and he makes his own wine in several varieties including red, white zinfandel, and chardonnay to name a few.
Lee has always loved to fly. So, in 1978, he got his pilot’s license. Since then, he has logged almost 800 flying hours. Not only does he love to fly, but he also enjoys jumping out of airplanes and has performed nearly 800 skydives.
Paulding has two daughters, and one granddaughter with his second grandchild on the way. He is part of nine generations of Pauldings in Pilesgrove.
