About Keefer Consulting

I started my company with a desire to serve clients more effectively. While experience as manager for a Fortune 500 company and a Big Four professional services firm helped shape my capabilities and vision, becoming an independent consultant has freed me to pursue more direct, honest relationships with clients I admire.

I have defined business requirements, designed fit-for-purpose solutions, and assumed leading roles in R&D and commercial IT projects for companies including Merck, Pfizer, and GSK. I managed development of the TMF Reference Model Exchange Mechanism Standard, Version 1 and now serve as volunteer for the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC).

I help biopharma companies transform clinical operations while incorporating machine learning and a quality by design into system acquisition and development. I envision a world in which clinical operations can share information seamlessly with regulators, service providers, and partners through common standards and processes. The ultimate goal is to achieve positive outcomes for patients quickly and cost-effectively.

Earning an MBA from Temple University helped launch my information technology career decades ago. More recently, I earned a Certificate in Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Business from the University of the Sciences (now part of Saint Joseph's University).

Ethical principles are foundational to my ability to help clients reach their goals. My Project Management Professional certification (PMP) and membership in the Project Management Institute (PMI) requires me to observe the PMI Code of Ethics.
