Leah, LPN

Hi, my name is Leah, LPN. I obtained my nursing license from Southeast Community College. I am a Lead Clinical Research Coordinator with Physician Research Collaboration.

I started my career in the medical field in the United States Air Force as an EMT/ Medical Technician. I worked for four years in Labor and Delivery and the rest of my enlistment in a specialty clinic. After five years of active duty, I missed home so I moved back to Nebraska. After returning home I started nursing school and went in Pediatrics right away. From there I was given an opportunity to start Pediatric Research and have not looked back since. I completed multiple vaccine, dermatology, device, blood, drug, and formula studies. I decided early in 2021 that I was ready to expand my research opportunities and transitioned to Physician Research Collaboration with so many possibilities and unique studies. I have been in research now for about five years overall with hopes to continue for years to come.

I am very passionate about research, without it we would not have the advances and possibilities we do in healthcare. I also enjoy my patients and getting to know them and thank them for helping future generations to come. Without research patients, we would not have the technology we do, the medicines, or the opportunities to make lives better.

I was raised in Grand Island and Lincoln, Nebraska. I enlisted in the Air Force after high school and was active duty, stationed in Texas, Mississippi, and Ohio. I moved back to Lincoln after the military. I have two daughters who definitely keep me busy. I love sports; I am a huge Cornhusker fan! I also love the outdoors and learning about United States History.
