Will Relocate:



I absolutely enjoy what I do and look forward to work every week. I know there will be challenges and problems that my team and I will have to solve. I enjoy this career because every day is different. Every study requires a different amount of care and expertise/experience. I love the organization that comes with this career. I love having my own studies and organize documents according to company SOP as well as my own way of preparing and treating documents for each study. I would someday love to become a project manager, and I feel that every job that I have had is preparing me closer and closer everyday for such a role. I shadow and watch closely the way the study manager manages and delegates study responsibilities. I am very observant and always willing to jump right in and do what needs to be done to keep the study rolling smoothly. I have ample experience working side by side physicians and feel very comfortable doing so and have a high confidence level in managing studies and being flexible in priorities and timelines as the Sponsor requires. I use lists everyday, and follow them until all of my tasks are checked off and before leaving for home, I will make a list of tasks that I will need to do when I arrive immediately the following day. I am also bilingual in Spanish and of course English. This has helped me tremendously here in southern California where the Spanish speaking population is high. So I have experience in foreign studies and the legal requirements that need to be followed. There is not much I have not seen in managing clinical research. I feel confident in my abilities and work great with others.

There are a lot of trials that I have been apart of that have gone on to the approval phase and found out that through the Data Management Safety Board that the data looks great and that the trial was awarded enough money to continue its recruitment and dosing until we see actual physical evidence that the patient is improving. Also using Compassionate Use with our study drug to help save a little 5 year old's life as this was the only remaining treatment available that might work and save the boys life. It worked, and this not only gave validation to this drug, it gave valuable data and prove that this can save lives of children with pneumonia. It was quite a special moment within our study team.

Companies I like:

Any Biopharma Company (start-up, or young companies) in Phase 1 or 2 of their studies

Making sure Study Drug is in the hands of the clinic workers who are doing the dosing on subjects. Making sure the IWRS matches and that the correct drug is given to the correct subject at the correct time. I also oversee timelines that I make for the traveling CRA's in the field for their schedules in conducting the appropriate visits whether it is the Site Feasibility Visit, Site Initiation Visit, Routine Monitoring Visits, or a Study Close-Out Visit. I am also flexible when issues at sites come up. I try to for see problems before they actually occur and that might be the reason there are more visit 3 study kits for example due to the fact that it requires an exact amount of blood for example and these extra kits give us that wiggle room to perform the visit on time and without delay. I am also in constant contact with my study team. Since I have managed and seen many studies I like to keep close communication to the team when potential trouble spots may hit during the study, this helps the CRA's have a heads up view of their upcoming week and potential issues they may see and not be surprised by them.
