Vision Statement 

Over the past decade my experiences as a Society of Clinical Research Associates (SOCRA) member, Board Member, speaker, and poster presenter have been truly inspiring. The profound impact SOCRA has on the clinical research community is incredible; the organization’s continued ability to promote quality clinical research across the full spectrum of professional careers is extraordinary. As I look towards the future, I envision SOCRA will continue to be the leader in clinical research education and certification. If elected President, I intend to ensure the organization maintains this position, while promoting the implementation of new innovative initiatives, designed to keep pace with the ever-evolving clinical research landscape. I believe it is essential the organization pioneer the development and implementation of modern educational offerings, specifically designed to support the professional growth of the membership. Over the last several years I have worked with the presidents, board members, and members, on the strategic direction of SOCRA; while actively contributing to this collaborative effort, I developed a deep understanding of SOCRA’s mission, which has positioned me well to facilitate the organization’s future growth. My knowledge and unequivocal enthusiasm for SOCRA will provide the necessary energy, inspiration, and expertise to elevate the organization’s contributions to the clinical research community. It is an honor to be nominated for President Elect of the Society for Clinical Research Associates, I am truly humbled and thank you for your consideration.
