I have nearly 3.5 years of research experience cumulatively. My experience as a Clinical Research Associate at UC Davis Medical Center allowed me to be at the forefront of researching innovative treatments and methods to improve patient results. As a Clinical Research Associate and further, a Clinical Research Trainer at UCDMC, I have gained the knowledge and experience which is necessary to be a productive asset to any team. As a research associate in the Hunter Laboratory on UC Davis campus, I have gained hands-on experience working in a wet lab. In addition, I have successfully completed a broad spectrum of upper division scientific coursework, in which I have gained a keen understanding of biological systems.
