Meet Brenda Patterson, our Founder. Brenda upholds a reputation of tenacity and passion within the biotech industry. Her award-winning experience includes 30 years as a recruiter, membership in the Pinnacle Society (a consortium of 75 of the top recruiters in the United States), and President of the Indiana Search and Staffing Association.
"I am Brenda Patterson and I’m known as 'The Recruiter with ‘Skin in The Game'. I began my recruiting career in 1988. In 1994, my six-year-old daughter was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. In 2006 my son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Sage advice from Steve Shak, MD, the discoverer of Pulmozyme, Frank DeFord, CF dad and author, and Boomer Esiason, CF dad and NFL Hall of Famer led me to:
Become an advocate for my children.
Learn everything I could about Cystic Fibrosis and Type 1 Diabetes.
Raise money for the CF Foundation and JDRF.
Follow scientific advancements.
Use my recruiting skills to serve the biotech industry.
I’ve built a company based on my passion to help patients live longer and healthier lives. My passion fuels our unique commitment that drives everything we do.”
