I’ve worked at Mayo Clinic my entire career, with 20+ years in the quality management field within the Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathology. My current role is Director of Regulatory Affairs, focused on clinical laboratory test development and verification/validation, as well as interacting with a variety of regulatory agencies such as the New York State Department of Health and the FDA.
I work with an amazing group of stakeholders every day to make our test lifecycle as efficient as possible while meeting all necessary requirements and regulations. Given the scope and complexity of testing at Mayo, I learn new things every day (and that’s what makes it fun!). I like nothing better than tackling a difficult process issue with a group of dedicated individuals and finding a common-sense solution that everyone can agree to.
I’m an ASQ Certified Manager of Quality and Organizational Excellence and an Instructor of Laboratory Medicine & Pathology at the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine. Demonstrating my love of learning, I’ve earned two Master's degrees in business and biochemistry/structural biology. Beyond quality management, I’m very interested in leadership development and organizational culture.
