Meet our Team

Meet Heather. Clinical Research Supervisor.

Exciting news that you are taking on new responsibilities at the clinic! 

Thank-you so much! It is an honor to be able to grow with Winterberry as a member of the team, as well as individually in my own practice and knowledge. 

Can you share with us your new job title?

I am the Clinical Research Supervisor; managing a team of about 12 

What type of work will you be doing in this role?

I am managing a growing team of researchers; which includes research coordinators, lab techs, nurses as well as a few of our Doctors and Nurse Practitioners.

What is the importance of this work within the clinic?

This is a huge area of purpose and growth for Winterberry as a whole. This is our chance to give back to the world of medicine as well as our patients. We are asked to take part in many trials, which gives us the advantage of selecting those that are best suited for our patients, focused on our areas of passion. We get to bring these trial opportunities to our patients as well as our own team members. 

What made you excited to make the change in your role at Winterberry?

I am so pleased to be a part of the overall purpose and vision of Winterberry- I became a nurse because it is a job with ever changing and endless opportunities; Winterberry is helping me achieve new career goals that I would have not been able to in a hospital environment. I am very proud of the work I do, my team does and Winterberry as a whole. 

Will patients benefit from your work in this role? If yes, please let us know how. 

Patients are the main focus for research- the reason we are doing it at all! Our patients get first access to any of the trials that we are offering and we attempt to let them know about every single one! There is a chance for patients to learn more about their own health, their possible areas of improvement as well as give them a chance to participate in medicine in a new and exciting way. 

What are you most excited about in this new role? 

I am genuinely thrilled when team members get excited and passionate about research; so being able to help others on the Winterberry team expand their knowledge and practice is extremely rewarding for me; not to mention some of the amazing benefits our patients experience when they come on board! Overall there is a lot to be excited for!
