I was the third official employee at Emergent, joining the company in 2015 as a Project Director. After receiving my degree in Occupational Therapy from Thomas Jefferson University, I spent two years working in direct patient care at a sub-acute rehabilitation hospital before making the move into Clinical Research. I started in the field as a Clinical Research Associate and served my time as a “road warrior” for several years before transitioning into Project Management. I spent time working for both Sponsor and service provider companies in pharmaceutical clinical research before shifting focus to medical device research.
I am happy to share my professional career once again with Joe and have enjoyed being part of the growth that has made our company what it is today. Medical Device clinical research thrives on the more personalized, relationship-driven interactions both with our Sponsor clients as well as our clinical sites. Our success is driven by our ability to work in partnership with our customers. I started my professional career wanting to improve the lives of patients and my last 20 years in Clinical Research has allowed me to continue doing that in ways that are constantly evolving and include many different therapeutic areas.
In my every day life, I love spending time with my husband John and my two amazing kids, Kaitlyn and Colin. I am happiest when relaxing on the beach, getting lost in a good book, going for a run or best of all, enjoying good food and even better wine with family and friends.
