Who is The CRA Helper?
I am a Clinical Research Trainer from Fayetteville, NC. I am passionate about clinical research, training, and quality. I want to help you get started on YOUR new career journey.
After about a year, I moved to the clinical department, and became an on-site monitor as a CRA II.
I was a road warrior and continued in the monitoring role for the next 14 years. I always had a passion to mentor and train. In July 2016, I transitioned from the role of Senior CRA to Clinical Operations Manager focusing on training new CRAs. I received ACRP CCRA certification during this time also.
Using my knowledge and experience, I trained CRAs for the next four years. I also would oversee the development of direct reports by setting goals, conducting performance reviews, evaluating and monitoring training needs, creating development plans, mentoring, and coaching.
Training and development is the path I am excited about. It is so rewarding to pour into CRAs, and watch them grow in their career.
