In the clinical trials industry for over 10 years, loving the diversity in the work that I do and the people that I meet. Strong believer in building lasting relationships. I find inspiration in the people I work with, overcoming challenges together and using opportunities to innovate. But most importantly it’s about the team, empowerment goes both ways.
