Shaleea dreamt of becoming a doctor until she was introduced to a clinical research study at the University of North Carolina. She quickly fell in love with the different style of patient interaction—and preferred it to the traditional doctor-patient relationship. After wrapping up the study, she found and applied to Quintiles—and started as a CTA.
Shaleea starts her workday with a cup of coffee at home before settling into her office to comb through emails. Though most of her duties are remote—like teleconferences with sponsors and video chats with colleagues—she often travels to research sites and works with the sponsors and medical staff running the show for a particular trial.
