Amanda Pitts on Helping

 

"I'm helping people. That's the main goal – helping people. This is about cutting-edge technology and medicine for our families, our mothers, our fathers, our brothers and sisters."
 
 

When she was just 18 years old, Amanda Pitts – Lab Manager here at Premier Clinical Research – began her career in the medical field as a caregiver for Spokane Visiting Nurses. After a great 13-year run, Amanda pursued her Phlebotomy license and eventually ended up with us – for which we are thankful! 

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting Amanda, you quickly learned that she has a big heart. Recently we asked her why she chose to do research for a career; her reply was simple: “I'm helping people. That's the main goal – helping people. This is about cutting-edge technology and medicine for our families, our mothers, our fathers, our brothers, and sisters. To be a part of that is huge. I feel very blessed to be a part of the research.”

“I just caught a 3-pound trout, my biggest fish so far,” she says with a wry smile.

When Amanda isn’t working to improve the overall quality of life for people, you’ll find her fishing or spending with her two children at her home on the Little Spokane River. “I just caught a 3-pound trout, my biggest fish so far,” she says with a wry smile. (By the way, I think that comment was aimed directly at me. My senses are telling me that she knows I’m terrible at fishing.)

In conclusion, one can’t help but feel hopeful knowing people like Amanda are doing the important work for the future of medicine. Thank you, Amanda.
