Vision Statement

As a clinical researcher for over 20 years and a certified member of SOCRA for over 18 years, I have acquired an abundance of experience, knowledge, and best practices from colleagues all over the globe. My disciplines in Hematology/Oncology; Adult and Pediatric Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism; Ophthalmology; Gastroenterology; and Neurology at public and private institutions, small and large, have given me a great appreciation for the scope and breadth of expertise across all phases of trials, 0-IV (yes, 0 when it was “go!” or “no-go!”). Whether academic, government, nonprofit or for-profit, the principles are similar in the operations. My firsthand involvement with investigator-initiated trials, co-operative, consortium, network and industry- sponsored trials have presented me opportunities to share my experiences through networking with others through local chapter meetings that I have run and presented, speaking occasions and teaching assignments.

As a member of the Board of Directors, I would contribute to the SOCRA mission by: 1- encouraging certification and recertification in clinical research, 2- inspiring colleagues to courageously educate others through networking and 3- identifying potential gaps in this industry in order to close them through education. Gaps may be the diversity and inclusion gap that is so needed in this industry across ethnicity and gender in the 21st century, or the technology gap where paper and electronics still continue to collide. I want to empower and enlighten professionals of all races to bring their best learned hard skills, along with their personal soft skills to the table and share with one another. It is then that science and research will bring out the best that medicine has to offer for all of mankind!
