    eLearning Specialist

    I started out in Graphic Design and figured out that it wasn’t for me. After many years of trial and error, I decided to get a master’s degree in Library and Information Science at Pratt Institute. I love information and sharing it is one of my joys in life. I had been offered a role at RCR and joined in July 2020. I have been a Regulatory Specialist for 2 and half years and am now starting a new staff role as an eLearning Specialist.
    Quick facts: I am hard of hearing, I wear two hearing aids (but they don’t work like glasses), and I can lip-read. I was the ONE of the one in a million chances of being allergic to the MMR vaccine which resulted in an illness in which the aftermath resulted in my hearing loss. I hate carrots and I love nachos.
