Associate Director of Research Administration for Campus Award Management Team
Valerie was introduced to research administration when joining Duke in 2008. Her work as a Marketing and Communications Manager for a local biomedical company helped to prepare her for the projects that would lead her to CAMT. While working as a departmental grant manager, she was encouraged to participate in various institutional projects and get involved with research administration outside of Duke. This exposure motivated her to join one of the RACI project teams at Duke. Her involvement in the RACI Closeout Project Initiative led her to assisting with the formation of the Campus Award Management Team (CAMT) to continue the support of research on campus. Valerie enjoys contributing to a variety of projects associated with research administration management and engaging with the research community at Duke.
