Ms. Clinical Research
I am a 1st generation American & former foster care youth. In college, I maintained an independent research funding & presented novel drug delivery at a national conference. I have worked in clinical trials managing and coordinating trials in all phases of clinical research. In my free time, I volunteer for causes that have helped those like me.

Big Life Wins:

I hope to connect patients to pharmaceutical companies and give them greater access and education through platforms within internal marketing systems. I think making patients feel as though they are not seen solely as consumers by companies and institutions that it will provide for better drug retention.
