Meet Julie

Making a dose and getting it to the patient in a timely manner is exhilarating. Every day that I make my commit times I feel I am making a difference. I also enjoy working on the investigational drug trials. Being a part of the process for a drug coming to market and knowing I had a hand in it is very fulfilling.
