I’m a Vaccine Specialist for Sanofi Pasteur in the Washington D.C. metro area.

In my role, I promote the importance and effectiveness of immunizations; educate on recommendations and burden of disease; and drive revenue growth by analyzing market trends, developing and maintaining business, and selling pediatric, adolescent, and adult vaccines in the healthcare community. With the collaboration of my company and team, I focus daily on our vision: A world in which no one suffers or dies from a vaccine-preventable disease.

Marywood University’s MBA program helped with my current position by providing a strong foundation to hone my business management knowledge, leadership, and analytical skills.  The small class settings allowed for a personal approach in learning and discussing important current business trends and issues.  This has led to my success in my career and in personal growth.
