Carole has written several in-depth articles and journal supplements for me. I never have to worry about the quality of her work or her ability to deliver materials on time. Her writing style is professional and engaging, and she is able to distill the essence of complex, technical, and clinical subject matter without oversimplifying it.

Simply put, Carole is a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to my professional colleagues without hesitation. ~ Manager, Health communications organization

Carole worked with us to write a manuscript to submit for publishing in an Academic Journal. Carole was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the process and guided each step of the way.

The article was accepted for publishing and we were very pleased with the outcome! ~ Assistant Vice President, Customer Insights and Solutions, Health insurance company

Epidemiology and Health Economics and Outcomes Research

I’ve had the pleasure of having Carole work for several of my clients as an Epidemiology/HEOR subject matter expert for the last four years. Carole is the consummate professional in every respect. Her work is incredibly detailed and highly regarded by all my clients. She is extremely accommodating, gracious, and very enjoyable to work with. Carole consistently exceeds my clients’ expectations with her timely, high-quality deliverables. She is an excellent advisor, and a brilliant strategist. I look forward to working with Carole for many years to come! ~ Director of Business Development, Health science consulting firm

I highly recommend Carole and work with her whenever possible. ~ President, Health economics and outcomes research consulting firm

Hi Carole, I met with our team lead for the new indication of compound X for AML. She is very delighted to discover the enormous quality, depth and validity of the epidemiology sections for the AML documents. She said the level of science coming out of our group of clinical epidemiology is unprecedented. A big compliment to you, Carole, for the science you are producing in our collaboration! Thank you! ~ Global Lead, Oncology and Epidemiology, Pharmaceutical company

The slide set presentation on HSCT was very, very well done. It was well-balanced and senior management was so impressed with the level of detail and your thorough approach to summarizing the key points in a vast literature. It was an impressive effort and you deserve the credit for compiling an impressive slide deck that addressed all of the key issues. ~ Global Lead, Oncology, Pharmaceutical company

I am extremely pleased with your work on the epidemiologic analysis of Drug X and have really enjoyed interacting with you! I am tough to impress and I am very impressed with you and your work! I have a call in as I write to ask the team if they will need more from “us”. I have approval to extend your contract as needed for this project. ~ Senior Medical Director & Head Clinical Epidemiology and Analytics, Pharmaceutical company

Carole, The data summary is absolutely perfect!!! Thank you so much! We hit a home run with the presentation and they were very impressed. We gave them a lot to think about and lots of new material to consider Thank you so much for all of your help! ~ Senior Medical Director and Head Clinical Epidemiology and Analytics, Pharmaceutical company

The compound analysis was very well received. It was a real eye-opener for the team…your insights really caused them to reassess their approach and made them realize that they have a lot of work to do to educate the field on this compound. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication on this project. I know it was hard-going at times, but we really do appreciate all the effort you put into this. Thank you for a job well done and I will let you know how the analysis for the second compound is received after it is presented sometime next month. ~ Senior Program Manager, Medical communications agency

Thank you for updating the table and verifying the data so quickly. I think you provided some critical messaging/discussion points. I really like the insights you provided on the preclinical and in development drug messaging. Thanks for all the help and hard work. ~ Project Manager, Continuing medical education organization

Thanks for your excellent research on this topic as I think it will substantially strengthen the proposal. You are right, this will lend toward the support of the Tracker AND interestingly it points out the great need for Company A to push forward on alternate routes of administration, which will significantly improve patient quality of life and will support any submission for a new label indication. Thanks again. ~ President, Medical research company

Strategic Analysis, Publication Planning and Sales Training

The analysis of the literature search was very thorough and the summary was a clean document … thank you again for your careful attention to detail and such thorough work. ~ Senior Scientist and Director of Medical Science, Pharmaceutical strategic marketing company

So I have completed the voiceover review and would first like to say I think you did an outstanding with this. The writing is tight and engaging––even on a rather austere subject such as biostatistics––and I can see it working well both as written text to be read by a user and as voiceover narrative. For me, reading the voiceover really brought the entire module together. The entire learning module really “comes to life” now! ~ President, Medical communications and consulting organization

Carole, this is an amazing accomplishment to date—-with the extreme deadlines we are under, the complexities of this meeting, and the scientific and technological expertise needed to execute this incredible production.

Phillip says he has never heard anything like that from a reviewer before. ~ Account Director, Medical communications company

You have done such an awesome job on the slides for the training program. The speaker notes are so detailed and you cover all of the key issues.

You really kept them on track and knew the key issues to address. Thank you for your efforts—you did a great job! ~ Chief Executive Officer, Medical publishing company

Carole was very good [during the presentation of the gap analysis results]. I liked listening to her and I think she brings a good perspective, so I would really like her to be involved especially when we go through clinical or medical data messaging, that kind of content. If she’s available, and is willing to, you know, spare the time, I think that could be helpful. ~ Product launch manager, Pharmaceutical company

Her high level of professionalism coupled with the high quality of her work quickly made me a repeat customer for her services upon our first engagement.

On one particular project, she was instrumental in our collaboration with a KOL and handled the interaction very well.

Over the past 2 years I have gradually increased the amount of work I send to Carole, because the quality and overall experience has been so positive. Carole is extremely deadline driven, and is absolutely fantastic at meeting the deadlines she sets. The quality of her work has been very high. She has been especially good at helping me complete editorial changes once the peer review comes in. The assignments I have asked her help with range from short editorials (where I just want a second set of eyes or some minor editing) to most recently, a very detailed report on the healthcare environment in China. ~ Principal Scientist, Medical device manufacturer
