“I’ve never been around so many hardworking, caring, and motivated people.”

I enjoy the challenges of my position. I find it rewarding to know that I help ensure that all human subject research is conducted in accordance with federal, institutional, and ethical guidelines. Even though we are a smaller institution, there is so much energy and talent behind our research endeavors.

The sense of community I feel here sometimes makes me forget that I’m an employee. I almost feel like I’m part of a family or something bigger than just me or my department. 

I’ve never been around so many hardworking, caring, and motivated people in any setting—workplace, school, or elsewhere. You feel compelled to strive for better and push yourself, not in a competitive way but in the sense that you know great things are being done here and you want to be a part of it.
