Ms. Amanda Rogers


About Me

Amanda Rogers has nearly a decade of experience in the clinical research field. She is a Clinical Research professional who has worked for major organizations such as Pfizer, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Merck before becoming an Independent Research Consultant, in addition to starting her own mobile phlebotomy business. Prior to research, Amanda worked in Danbury Hospital’s Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Department in Connecticut as a Medical Laboratory Technologist and Phlebotomist. She also teaches college-level clinical research interns from all over the world, as well as instructing venipuncture and medical assisting courses. Ms. Rogers is the former Director of Clinical Operations at Altor BioScience in Florida. She serves as an archivist for people with disabilities who want to work, as well as confidence building in young women that come from humble beginnings such as her own. While living with her foster family at the age of 15, Amanda was ejected out of the front windshield of a moving vehicle (with a seat belt on) resulting in fractures to her jaw and neck, among other serious injuries sustained during that accident. Just 10 months after the first car accident, Amanda was involved in a second motor vehicle accident involving a woman who tried to commit suicide by using her own vehicle to collide into the car that Amanda was a passenger in. She missed a lot of high school because of all injuries sustained, however Amanda was still determined to further her education in hopes of a better life. During her rehabilitation, she was subsequently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Epilepsy, Glaucoma, Endometriosis and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Despite her difficult past, Amanda was still determined to invest in herself. After obtaining a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Psychology, and a M.H.S. in Biomedical and Laboratory Sciences from Quinnipiac University in 2011, she went on to become a Certified Phlebotomist Technologist and Instructor from the National Phlebotomy Association. She is continuing her educational goals by obtaining a Ph.D. in Healthcare Administration by 2021. Ms. Rogers is affiliated with the American Heart Association, American Red Cross, National Phlebotomy Association, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and has been featured in the Autumn 2019 issue of P.O.W.E.R. magazine for being a Woman of Excellence. In her spare time, Amanda independently started a volunteer initiative outside of the local homeless shelter in her community, serving food to homeless mothers, children, elderly and disabled residents of the shelter. In addition to a hot meal, she also provides clothes, school supplies, holiday toy/turkey drives, as well as advice and support for residents of the shelter. She enjoys helping young women, who may not have been born into the most conducive environments, by showing them how to become productive members of society, how to invest in themselves and how to become a professional woman, as Amanda has done primarily on her own. Amanda’s vigor to help others is contagious! Ms. Rogers serves in many leadership capacities as a life mentor for young women looking to break away from an otherwise toxic childhood and recognize their true potentials, similar to her own childhood. She enjoys education, music, friends/family activities, reading, traveling, playing cards, walking and playing with her two cats. Amanda states, “I attribute my success from my faith and inner strength, observed within my mother. I have an inquisitive nature, and enjoy helping all women recognize the beauty and potential within themselves. I try to be the change I wish to see in the world and hope to leave this world a better place”.
