In many ways my work is unusual and non-traditional. Every day is different and I interact with a variety of health research teams doing research in multiple fields. It’s a pleasure to see how the research teams develop and grow as they learn how to bring the patient experience into their work, and patient-partners learn how to work with and guide the teams. This work doesn’t occur in a vacuum, and I’m fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful co-workers who are enthusiastic and devoted to improving health research — and are supportive of me in my work. The commitment from my colleagues and willingness to support each other make this a great place to work.Close quote
