I am a Clinical Trials Manager for the division of cardiovascular medicine and Vanderbilt Center for Translational and Clinical Cardiovascular Research (VTRACC) at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. I am currently working on clinical and translational research predominantly focused on the role of the natriuretic peptide system on cardiovascular health, heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, and cardiovascular disease prevention.
I came to Vanderbilt from Louisiana State University where I was a CCRC in psychopharmacology. Prior to this I worked in a variety of health clinics where I assisted in different types of patient care, to include urgent care, pain intervention, and work care. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Pre-med Biology with a minor in psychology from University of West Georgia. I am certified as a clinical research coordinator through the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP).
