Vision Statement:

As a current member of the SOCRA Board of Directors, I have gained resourceful insight into the workings of our important and useful Society – for this, I am very grateful.  It has been a sincere honor to lead with such esteemed research professionals and leaders from across the globe during an international pandemic.  Through leadership and partnership, education and mentorship, within both in-person and virtual spaces, I hope to guide our board in conveying this expertise and knowledge to expand our research-related information.  By building equity in research, educating and serving others, and providing top-notch regulatory content, we can be successful in promoting quality clinical research, protecting the welfare of research participants, and improving global health.  Times have changed, dear friends, but we can do this together by supporting, utilizing, and enhancing SOCRA’s exceptional education, certification, and professional information exchange.

Becoming the President-Elect of our Board of Directors will allow me to further serve our board and overall membership.  By fostering professional development and peer recognition of clinical research professionals, it will shepherd us into the future.  May we strive to make the best, better – no matter what situation we might find ourselves in.
