I work in the Ob-Gyn Clinical Research Office as the regulatory specialist, assisting physicians, scientists, fellows and residents with the submission of studies and projects to Institutional Review Boards at UW, UPH-Meriter and central IRBs. I prepare research authorization and informed consent documents, manage regulatory binders, compile training records and provide education on data security of private health information.

I have been a research professional at UW–Madison for almost 20 years, with 16 years in the Department of Pediatrics as a lab manager and over two years with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I graduated from UW–Madison in 1996 and stayed another year to earn my teacher certification.  I live in Monticello with my two sons, 3 dogs and 3 cats.
