Behind the Curtain at IMPACT
Meet Our Heads of Medical Writing!
IMPACT's medical writing team has significant experience authoring a variety of regulatory documents across a wide range of therapeutic areas  and all phases of development. We have authored hundreds of clinical study reports, clinical protocols, Investigator Brochures, and components of Investigational New Drug applications.

[From Left to Right: Front Row - Erica Allen, Tim Garver, Nancy Gasper-Smith. Back Row - Jennifer Moen, Kim Nice]

The medical writing team is spearheaded by: Tim Garver  (Executive Vice President and COO),  Jennifer Moen  (Principal Clinical Research Scientist and Associate Director, Corporate Communications),  Kim Nice  (Associate Director, MW & Submissions Management),  Erica Allen 
(Senior Manager, MW & Program Management), and 
Nancy Gasper-Smith  (Senior Manager, MW & Submissions Management).

These lovely folks keep our medical writing operation running smoothly. During their free time, our fearless leaders partake in their favorite activities.  Nancy enjoys running, DIY projects around the house, and working in the yard. You can find  Erica chasing her 2 young children around the ice rink or horse stables, volunteering, and traveling.  Kim lives for the water - you can often find her in the pool with her little one or in a boat, relaxing on the beautiful NC coastal waters. Outside the office,  Jennifer "aka JMo" enjoys traveling, cheering on the Tarheels, or chilling with friends.  Tim spends his free time with his wife, Jenny, and their 3 children, running along the streets of Apex (ie, The Peak of Good Living), hiding out on Bald Head Island, and cheering on every Pittsburgh sports team (go Penguins!).
