This individual is one that takes pride in what she does. Everybody has a great deed in pride into what they do on a daily basis. Chelsea, from the moment I started working with her, I could see the compassion she has for what she does. Every patient of hers takes a special part in her heart, and she goes above and beyond for each one of them. She is very helpful and sincere with making it work for the patients. Her determination drives me to be just as motivated even more in the work that I do. I would put her at the top of the list as an empowered young woman with a drive that can’t be beat. Discussing patients treatments with her is like a heartfelt story because the compassion behind every word is endearing. Her strong passion will lead her to do many things as she grows in her career. I am honored to experience the awesomeness she has to offer.
Thank you

Kathy Franco is one of the most dedicated researchers I have met. Not because of the research she participates in, the importance of which can’t be overstated, but because she dedicates so much time to training the next generation of researchers (PI’s, Coordinators, Monitors, etc.) and retraining the current population of researchers to maintain the absolute peak of quality. She is willing to take calculated risks to support her people, which has resulted in many bold and innovative proposals and grant opportunities. I enthusiastically and strongly recommend Kathy, and I’m confident many more will as well. #Mentor4Life
