Senior Clinical Research Coordinator


I am a Senior Clinical Research Coordinator at the Breathe Chicago Center© (BCC). I am a key lead in the national RECOVER study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), where UI Health has recruited over 900 participants and has collaborated with community organizations to ensure the voices of underserved communities are represented.

I have served at UIC as a Clinical Research Coordinator and Research Assistant at the College of Medicine's Otolaryngology and Pulmonary departments. As a UIC graduate student, I served as a Teaching Assistant for graduate health economics and policy courses. Beyond my work experience, I also was a student representative at the Committee on Research in the UIC School of Public Health.
