I am passionate about learning something new. All the time.
Whether at work or at one of his many personal projects, Ashwin takes whatever he does and truly makes it his own. One of the most noticeable things about him is his passion for learning new things. Moreover, he takes challenges upon himself and is willing to take risks.
Ashwin’s creativity and innovation is driven by curiosity and love of doing things in ways no one had ever done before. Maybe it’s his love of learning, but whatever it is; his desire to grow has driven him towards passion and love of trying new things. With a degree in Chemistry and two minors in Business and Healthcare Management from Temple University, Ashwin is now a Site Management Associate at PRA.
Ashwin believes that everyone has a light bulb in their heads waiting to go off, to tell them which direction to take. His journey to PRA was just that. He enjoys his job and the people he works with, and he believes that PRA has a great culture where he can learn and grow. Ashwin also believes that while nobody in his department has exactly the same talent, they each bring unique and valuable qualities to the team, and that is a big part of what makes PRA different.
When he is not working, playing basketball or spending time with his family, Ashwin is focused on refurbishing his motorcycle. It involves a lot of work and problem solving, but he finds the nuances in overcoming challenges to be rewarding and knows it will all be worth it in the end.
We weren’t surprised to hear he feels that way.
As a Site Management Associate, he is responsible for monitoring the performance of study sites, as well as site recruitment and feasibility activities. While freely admitting that it’s not where he expected to be, he sees this job as a launch pad for him at PRA and is always ready to learn something new.
