I actually just became a research administrator very recently in March of 2023! I used to be in the Mortgage Industry, but wanted to make a career path change as it wasn’t very fulfilling. Since I have started, I have really loved it. The community that being a RA is great and being able to participate in helping research get completed is a great feeling. I look forward to learning more and more and hopefully becoming an expert in pre-award. In the future I hope I can make it out to some NCURA conferences to obtain an ever greater depth of knowledge.
