I am a seasoned drug developer with outstanding people skills. I have a passion for helping people see the “bigger picture” so that they can achieve their most important goals. During my 30-year career with Pfizer, I held many varied roles that have given me a broad and deep understanding of the Drug Discovery and Development Process.
During much of my career, I educated colleagues and others about pharmaceutical R&D, including establishing and running Pfizer Research University. I strive to be known for my ability to help people understand each other’s perspectives so that they can work together more successfully.
After retiring from Pfizer, I started Salem Oaks™ Consulting. Our purpose is to empower patients to shape the future of medicine™. We do this by providing educational programs about the Medicines Development process. Our hope is that by providing the knowledge, skills, and confidence required to participate on a drug development team, patients, caregivers, and advocates will be able to bring their unique perspective as experts in their own disease to the table more effectively.
