We are honored to have Kelly Toms as part of the HBA Florida board in 2016. Several of her peers on the board have been known to let us know how excited they are to have her on the team. Brenda Young recently stated, “We have struggled since the beginning up here in Tampa in getting and keeping our programs on track. Kelly has done a wonderful job in, first, being willing to take on the position and then doing a wonderful job in getting us organized and assisting in any number of ways.” Kelly has been hard at work developing her programming team and we are confident she will start to grow the chapter as well.
Kelly graduated in 2014 from the University of Southern Florida with a degree in technical communication and new media. She is currently a business development research analyst at Meridien Research where she seeks out new clinical trial opportunities through infomraiton analysis, identifies potential sponsor contacts using multi-point investigation techniques and performs marketplace examinations to remain informed about industry trends.
In 2015, she was a member of the volunteer-programming committee for the HBA Florida Tampa region and then was recently selected as the director of programming for HBA Florida.
