Meet Tanita

Tell us about yourself, your position, background, motivations.

I originally was born in Illinois but now reside in “The Cheese State” of Wisconsin. I currently am a Senior Clinical Trial Manager at Crinetics and I manage the day-to-day activities of the clinical trial process while collaborating with our CRO to ensure our study is executed following established procedures and guidelines and ensuring timely recruitment of trial participants. Interesting enough, my background includes a degree in animal science. I started my career in pre-clinical lab work before transitioning into clinical trials. My motivation is my family and pushing forward for my 3 boys. Outside of work I like to spend time outdoors and hike with my dogs and family. I also love to travel and visit different places. I love new experiences!


What about Crinetics makes you the most excited to work here?

Outside of the fact that I play a role in managing a clinical trial that supports the overall goal of providing better therapies for better lives for those with rare endocrine disease, I love working for a company/team that I can consider my Crinetics family! My voice is heard, my input valued and I definitely do not feel alone when any challenges come my way!


What is your advice on people hoping to join Crinetics?

Be confident in your experience, be true and genuine and be yourself. Crinetics is of course looking for great talent, but it is also looking for that next Crinetics family member.
