Vision Statement

Having had the pleasure of serving as a Director on the SOCRA Board, I have gained a new-found appreciation for the work that is done by both the organization and its membership. SOCRA has served as an unwavering and dedicated organization that has provided us with education and professional development even during these trying times. Our membership has been steadfast and dedicated to solving our world’s most pressing issue and continues to persevere even under exceptional circumstances. I find inspiration by so many of you through the experiences you share at our events. You serve as an admirable example of professionalism for the next generation of clinical research professionals. 

However, you are all aware that maintaining a robust and healthy financial outlook is critical to ensuring the ongoing success of SOCRA.  Having a strong and stable financial position will ensure that SOCRA can continue to provide us the resources needed to thrive even in these challenging times.  If elected Treasurer, I will work diligently together with the SOCRA Staff to ensure the financial security and maintain strong financial position of SOCRA both today and in the future.

I thank you for taking the time to read my vision statement and hope to have the opportunity to continue to serve you in the future.
