Kathy Beach leads two diverse clinical nurse educator teams within the Integrated Engagement Services (IES) organization at QuintilesIMS — a clinical nurse education (CNE) team focused on rare diseases and a team of clinical diabetes nurse educators (CDEs).

In addition, the CDE team educates patients on their disease and they provide product education in compliance with all policies and regulations.

Most recently, she was responsible for the strategic deployment of an 80-plus clinical education team and developed and launched an innovative online education platform for consumers and HCPs. Kathy began her career working for a pharmaceutical company where she held a variety of roles including sales, project management, marketing and strategic planning and development.
