Erica Ruggiero

US Development Officer

She is excited to move forwards in her career at PCR by raising money, supporting others, and spreading information and promoting awareness about the valuable research being done by her hardworking team. She is eager, adaptable, and intuitive. During her free time, you can find Erica either getting lost in a book or getting lost out in the woods on her hikes.

Naomi has a PhD in science, for which she helped a new breast cancer treatment get to clinical trial.
