ABOUT dr. harris



I started my journey in Research back in 1998 under the Physician Scientist Training Program in Philadelphia at Temple University. Under this program I was able to conduct research at top universities and pharmaceutical research sites in Chicago, Toronto, San Diego and Philadelphia. I transitioned from working in a laboratory to Clinical Research back in 2010. I am a Senior Clinical Research Professional who has managed more than 300 million in Global Clinical Trial projects for Biotech and Pharmaceutical companies working at 5 of the top CROs in the United States including ICON, PRA Health Sciences, PAREXEL, IQVIA and PPD. As a Clinical Operational Strategist and Senior Director, I have secured over 36 million in new study awards over the past year. I enjoy coaching clinical teams, networking with research advocacy groups and connecting with vendors that support clinical trial efficiency, data management, decentralization, and improving experience and engagement. with patients and sites. 


I decided to live the lifestyle I have imagined today so on my downtime you will find me blogging and helping other people with their Life/Career goals and obstacles. My mantra is to live the life you have imagined and do more of what makes you happy. I have a high energy personality because I built a life and career that I love, and I am excited just to wake up and start my day. It does not feel like work when you are doing the things that bring you the most joy. For me that is Clinical Research, Life & Career Coaching, being the Owner of a Beauty Brand in Las Vegas, cooking pescatarian style, running, and balancing work and life as a mom and wife.


I am mostly a remote CEO which means my businesses run on auto pilot. This allows me the freedom to really make an impact in this world while continuing to work in Clinical Research. I also spend just a few hours coaching a handful of clients per week and through Black Career Coach refer people to some amazing coaches all over the world.


I had to overcome many challenges including growing up in the projects, fertility issues, divorce, health issues and the most heartbreaking experience having my soon to be adopted child whom I raised since birth taken from me with malice 3 times in 1 year by a Philadelphia CUA agency and DHS. She was essentially legally kidnapped for no reason and placed in foster care when she had family. We have since been reunited. I work daily to release the trauma from this experience, and this inspired a movement and a book called Release Year that I authored. If you have not read my book then you definitely should order a copy here.

God has blessed me with an amazing husband and a son who was delivered naturally at 35 years young in 2019 along with my daughter. Plus through marriage, I have two bonus teenage children. I have the life I imagined and I am truly thankful. 


My motto besides living the life I imagined and doing more of what makes me happy is simply push through even if you're going through.  I am all about positive vibes, overcoming obstacles and choosing peace over everything.  I love to learn new things and enjoy talking to people and helping others succeed. I was raised by Grandmother and she taught me about love, respect and kindness to all. I treat everyone with respect and dignity no matter their background or if we have different beliefs.
