I wanted to be involved in clinical trials after finishing my undergraduate school and was fortunate to join Frenova in 2009. Working with the company exposed me to a population of patients with kidney disease, and I gained knowledge in many new therapeutic approaches in nephrology. The professional, team-oriented atmosphere and the friendships that I continue to build create a great sense of camaraderie at Frenova. The invaluable experiences have strongly contributed professionally and personally to my development as a dedicated and compassionate individual. Throughout my career, my mission is to support and promote research with one goal in mind: to treat/eradicate disease and human suffering by offering patients the latest and most effective treatments, while offering kindness, a positive attitude and hope. That’s what I do at Frenova.
