She began her career at GlaxoSmithKline where she spent 7 years as a medicinal chemist. She then transitioned into the Sample Management world in 2010 when she accepted a position as the head of Compound Management at Vanderbilt University. At Vanderbilt, she built a robust compound management facility and workflows that supported a wide variety of academic drug discovery programs and industry collaborations. After almost 5 years at Vanderbilt, she became the leader of the La Jolla based Compound Logistics team at Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson and Johnson in 2014.
