Seasoned Quality Leader

Valued quality and GXP regulatory compliance leader with 30 years of real-world boots-on-the-ground experience and insights into the complex and global rigors of small and large life science organizations from early-stage discovery through critical development milestones to product approval, launch and beyond.

What differentiates me from most Quality professionals is my approach to integrating quality and regulatory compliance matters proactively, strategically, relationally (collaboratively and not just transactionally) with others and as value into a client’s business plan for achieving predictability, patient needs and business success – anticipating, identifying and resolving potential issues before they become significant organizational pain points with the FDA, investors or other key stakeholders.
