The Rock Star
Training is like being on stage.
“Every day is a performance where I give everything I have to impact my audience and make it an unforgettable experience.”
Lucy is a living legend around the halls of PRA. Growing up, she wanted to be a rock star. But unlike most kids with musical aspirations, Lucy actually made her way to the stage. Through relentless practice, promotion, and persistence, she became the leading lady of several sold-out shows. There was crowd surfing, mosh pits, and encore after encore. However, then the time came for University, and her first band broke up.
After a few of the kind of aimless years you often hear about in songs, Lucy felt frustrated at her lack of direction. So she made a change. And we’re so glad she did.
Her first job on her new path was as an administrator at a tiny 50-person CRO in Nottingham. Just when she thought she’d “be out of that place in no time flat,” something happened. She began paying closer attention to the papers she was copying. She started reading the data, statistics, and results from ongoing trials. More than that, she was drawn into the stories behind what she had always thought of as meaningless pieces of paper. She got pulled into the patients’ journeys and they struck a chord. Lucy has continued to write and play music throughout her career at PRA, and still enjoys life on the stage, both in and out of the Clinical Research world.
Lucy is in charge of all CRA training for Europe and Asia Pacific. Her amazing personality and commanding presence brought her to a bigger stage than she’d ever imagined. And her connection is undeniable.
