Clinical Data Coordinator

For several decades I have been, and continue to be, a professional musician. Frequently, working musicians need to seek additional employment to stay afloat. That certainly is my situation.

In December of 2005, I had the great fortune of being hired as a data validator by the very small, young DF/Net Research, Inc. I was one of four people in the office at that time, soon to be joined by two other validators.

Previously, in other organizations, I did various kinds of database-oriented work which I always have enjoyed. For me, database work provides a perfect balance between its orderliness and the often chaotic nature of the music business. This is the best “day job” I’ve ever had.

It has been an awesome experience to see how this great company has continued to grow and be a significant entity in the quest for improving the health of people all over the world, particularly in the realm of HIV suppression research.
