Nicole Wells earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Eastern University and is currently pursuing her Master of Arts degree in clinical counseling. Wells has been with Design Science for three years. One of her specialties has been human factors recruitment. Wells joined the Design Science team when in-house recruitment was in its early stages. She has recruited for over 50 studies and spearheaded the company’s largest project to date. She has a knack for creativity to find the right participants.
Within the span of a few years, Wells and her team have been able to expand their database to the point where they are able to rely almost exclusively on internal recruitment efforts. The nature of recruiting for medical device studies is always changing to maintain compliance with FDA requirements. Recruiting is also impacted by external factors such as pandemics. Wells and her team have learned and adapted along the way, maintaining high level outputs.
