Research Communications

I am thrilled to use my 20+ years of research administrative expertise in healthcare, science, and academics to advance CDB’s mission.

Before joining U-M in 2011, I led research and education initiatives at the Michigan organ and tissue recovery organization. Moving my 17-year career from Gift of Life Michigan to the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) was a rewarding leap. While at MICHR, my responsibilities quickly grew from grant editor to leadership roles in research development, pilot grant funding, biostatistics, and project management.
I have been a project director, co-investigator, consortium member, grant administrator, and first author during the lifecycle of various research projects. I look forward to sharing my unique perspective with CDB research teams offering services that support writing concise applications and compelling reports, project management, regulatory compliance, and problem-solving.

Until the pandemic struck the U.S. I was a volunteer at Michigan Medicine. I am the mother of two daughters and an 80+ lb. dog. In my free time, you will find me enjoying the outdoors or making functional art sculptures. As a Michigan native, I love all kinds of water and snow sports.
