Director, Strategic Accounts
Kristina has a strong background in clinical research, patient advocacy, and business development. She began her career in clinical research operations as an associate director at George Clinical (a division of the George Institute for Global Health). In this role, she facilitated partnership discussions with pharmaceutical companies to ensure effective clinical trial recruitment.
As a T1D patient and advocate, she has educated physicians, patients and students, and managed and developed clinical trial protocols from a patient-minded perspective. Kristina shares the insights from these experiences – from lab-bench to health education, non-profit healthcare administration, academic and pharmaceutical clinical operations – at numerous national conferences.
She holds a Doctor of Public Health from the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, a Master’s degree in hospital and healthcare facility administration, health education and promotions from Campbell University School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, and a Bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
