Director Process Development – Amgen

I leverage my past experiences supporting commercial operations and digital transformation now into one role.

I started as a bench-scientist executing cell-based experiments to support commercial operations, then managed the team as well as held the role of Aranesp Drug Substance Team Lead. I regularly interacted with international regulatory agencies for CMC filings and site inspections, as well as supervised and mentored junior scientists to achieve their career aspirations.

During that time, I saw the untapped-value of data and how we were underutilizing data analytics to extract knowledge. So, I moved into the Digital Integration & Predictive Technologies group to advance the use of machine learning applications and improve how we do science. I then shifted to focus on the digital culture needs of our people and drove adoption and use of innovative digital assets.

I’ve enjoyed working for the same company for so many years across three sites (PR, MA, RI), helping to serve every patient, every time.
