She has a 15-year work history with Evidera and its legacy companies. Before re-joining Evidera in 2019, Mary Kay spent over four years at the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). As associate director, evaluation and analysis, she provided senior leadership and guidance to PCORI’s evaluation activities, implementing new initiatives and processes.

Prior to that, she was a senior research associate, first at United BioSource (UBC) and then at Evidera, and earlier was project manager at MEDTAP International, the original incarnation of UBC.
