I am a graduate of Suffolk University with a BS in Psychology and Sociology. I started my work in non-profits in 2013 and was fortunate enough to join CISCRP in May of 2020. Prior to CISCRP I worked in the Center for Neuro Oncology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute with clinical trial patients. Having the opportunity to work directly with patients in the clinic helped me understand the gap that exists between the clinic team and the non-specialist audience. I learned the process and became invested in helping patients understand the research, the informed consent process and the study requirements. In this role I look forward to helping to improve the patient experience and spreading awareness and hope for all future clinical trial patients.
