Nurse Practitioner/ CTU Manager/ Clinical Research Coordinator

Jess is a native to New York and grew up in the suburbs of Long Island. She received her BA in Chemistry from SUNY Geneseo in 2010 and her BS in Nursing from Stony Brook University in 2014. Jess developed her nursing skills working on a fast-paced medical surgical unit at a community hospital on Long Island. While she enjoyed working as a floor nurse, she ultimately knew she had an interest in a career that could combine both healthcare and research. In 2015, Jess relocated to Boston, MA to begin working as a clinical research nurse coordinator at the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research. She quickly developed a passion for the CVVR’s mission. Jess graduated from the University of Massachusetts Boston in May 2020 with her MSN as an Adult Gerontological Nurse Practitioner. She plans to use this degree to further her healthcare and research efforts. When she’s not working hard, Jess enjoys cooking, traveling, and attending Orange Theory Fitness classes.
