Clinical Research Nurse Coordinator

Diane comes from a line of nurses that stretches back two generations. She received her BS in nursing from Penn State University in 2006. Her nursing career began at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, working in the pediatric intensive care unit for four years, followed by three years in an outpatient medicine / pediatric setting. In 2012 she took a position as a clinical research nurse coordinator (CRNC) in the Division of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, where she gained experience in the design and execution of clinical trials. Continuing to follow her passion for research, in 2016, she moved to Boston, where she joined the CVVR CTU as a CRNC. She has the pleasure of coordinating some of the exciting clinical trials that are conducted within the CVVR, which include preventional vaccines and therapeutics for a multitude of infectious diseases, such as the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). She plans to obtain a master’s degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner, and then her doctorate in Nursing Practice so that one day she can lead her own research studies and become a leader within the nursing field. In her spare time, Diane enjoys visiting local museums, biking around Boston, and building her skills as an amateur foodie.
