Carrie Mansfield, Principal
"I tend to get behind issues and projects that I believe in,” says Carrie. “So I find our work at JA really rewarding.”
Carrie faces a unique challenge: how to make sure our educational programs improve the health outcomes of patients without wasting a dime of anyone's money. "If we know that our evidence-based programs are actually filling knowledge gaps, then we know we have spent and earned money wisely," notes Carrie. "It would be hard to do more."
Carrie not only directs the Cambridge office, she is also responsible for meeting with current and prospective clients to determine how or even if JA can help them achieve their business goals. At the same time she works hard to foster close professional ties with the expert opinion leaders and scientists who interact with the agency on various assignments and events for our clients. This is vital because the majority of new business comes in to JA because of the agency’s reputation for spotless and seamless relations within the clinical community.
Carrie attended Colby College, where she graduated cum laude with a major in psychology and a minor in business. During her junior year she spent a semester abroad in New Zealand, where she attended the University of Otago in Dunedin and cultivated her passion for running and adventure sports. In 2008, she went on to complete an MBA at Babson College, and in 2009 she was promoted to a principal at JA.
Carrie, her husband, Liam, and their three children can often be found at the family's old homestead in Andover, Maine, where Carrie embraces being a mom and a Mainer-at-heart for a few brief moments before returning once again to the daily demands of the office.
