I started my research career more than 15 years ago, working with animals at the USGS National Wildlife Health Center as a microbiological research technician working in the BSL3 lab. I also worked in industry as well as for the UW-School of Veterinary Medicine and the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center. I moved on to work with the IACUC at the Medical College of Wisconsin, which later led to working with the Human Research Protection Program. In 2011, I started working at the UWCCC in the central office and in 2014 joined the Department of Human Oncology Clinical Research Team as the regulatory specialist. I ensure adherence to federal, state, and local regulations throughout the lifecycle of each clinical research project.
