I do my part for the Encore Research community by introducing patients to exciting research opportunities right in their area! I strive to help patients have the best research experience possible right from the start by going above and beyond to answer any questions that they may have about specific programs and by accommodating their schedules.
I was born on Jekyll Island and raised in HOTlanta (Atlanta) Georgia where I started my career in research as a young professional assisting with focus groups. At St. Johns Center for Clinical Research, I enjoy varied clinical roles– from research assistant to recruiter.
My husband and I met in St. Augustine in 2006 and we were married there in 2009. And I can now say that I live on an island! That is, Anastasia Island in St. Augustine, and it truly is so beautiful. We are outnumbered by our pets - two cats and two dogs - all rescue animals. In our spare time, we enjoy volunteering in Bible education work and playing couple’s beach volleyball whenever we can.

Since Spring of 2013, Alex has been a wonderful addition to our research family. He has been a Research Assistant at two Encore Research sites; starting at Fleming Island Center for Clinical Research and currently at Jacksonville Center for Clinical Research (University Blvd).
Alex is a man of many hobbies, some of which include: plant breeding "Nepeta cataria citriodora" (Citrus Cat Nip), lampworking, bead making, cycling, and gardening. In fact, Alex's garden is called Eir and is registered with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) and he has formed an LLC (Limited Liability Company) named Lyfberg which is Icelandic for "Healing Hill" which will take his gardening hobby to a professional level.
When Alex is not busy with all of those hobbies, he may be seen collecting heirloom seeds, millefiori glass (Italian for "thousand flowers"), or pokemon cards. His favorite food is a cheeseburger, even a veggie burger, and he is currently working on a recipe for a veggie burger with mostly beans, seeds, and rice.
If you noticed Alex's photo, you might have guessed that his favorite football team is the Jaguars. He also enjoys The Flash comic and TV show. His favorite video game is Halo and card game is pokemon (Gotta Catch 'Em All!)

"I do my part by managing the Fleming Island Office of Encore Research." On a daily basis I work as a Research Nurse Manager of our Fleming Island site supporting the Physician Investigators and staff in conducting clinical trials being carried out in our office. I am an original “Cheese Head” born in Green Bay Wisconsin and transplanted to Central Florida at the age of 10. I moved to Jacksonville for college and made Jacksonville my home. My greatest accomplishment is my four children. I enjoy family, cycling, travel and fishing.
