I have been involved in clinical research for more than 23 years. I started my career in clinical research at Washington University in St Louis, Mo. In 1998, my family and I moved home to Madison and I joined the UW research team, coordinating research trials for the Department of Human Oncology. Since joining the UW team, I have been involved in numerous multi-disciplinary trials that encompass NCI-funded trials, investigator-initiated trials and industry trials. I am proud to manage this fabulous team of dedicated and experienced coordinators. My favorite part of the job is seeing our efforts in clinical trials research result in new and improved standard of care treatments for cancer patients.
