Karen Erickson

Patient Advocate
CTTI Steering Committee Member
I am an impatient patient. The drive to create innovative solutions for patients with rare disease is the origin of my work in the biotech industry and of my employment and voluntary positions in rare disease advocacy. My experience in the biotechnology arena as a performance consultant, training manager, clinical operations manager and process development professional armed me with the appropriate skill set to develop strategies for stakeholder engagement and meaningful metrics to evaluate and drive success. First-hand experience as a patient in the AATD/rare disease arena solidified the mindset and brought my focus to engagement methodologies to drive patient-centered research and outcomes, both in rare and common chronic disease.
