Research Team

Linda Cordell
Director, Business Operations

“I have been with OHHRF since 2001. It has been very rewarding yet challenging! I have worked in the research arena since 1989, but working in cardiovascular research has been the most interesting, and it seems like I learn something new every day! I am looking forward to the continued growth of OHHRF!”

Jenny Stewart
Director of Philanthropy

"I absolutely love the mission of OHHRF because everything we do is focused on helping our patients. You see, there’s a human aspect to the fight against heart disease that is truly personal to us all. Giving grandparents more time with their grandkids and families more holidays together is what makes our work worthwhile. Thank you to all of our amazing donors for making this possible!"

Stacie Hanes R.N, CCRC
Senior Research Coordinator and Program Manager, Valve Clinic

“I enjoy working in research for many reasons. I love the variety of learning opportunities, including working with new technology with our physicians and staff at OHH. I love the ability to provide this technology/treatment to patients who have few other options and see their improved quality of life after treatment.”

Julia Myers, RN, BSN, CCRC
Clinical Research Coordinator

“Research pushes me to overcome challenges and controversies while making a difference and providing hope in the lives of those around me, through alternate therapies available only through clinical research.”

Tawnaya Wright, CCRC
Research Associate

“Working in research has offered the opportunity to help provide patients with hope where there otherwise may be despair, and to be a part of not only prolonging life, but improving the quality of life as well... and I’m a pushover for a happy ending.”

Valerie Gudell, R.N.
Clinical Research Coordinator

"I enjoy working in Research because I love being part of something new and innovative and to see medications or devices studied and eventually on the market helping future patients. Also, working in Research, I learn something new everyday. It's challenging and never boring!"

Kylie Uribe
Office Coordinator

"Working in the Clinic for the Uninsured is very rewarding. We can provide the specialty care uninsured patients desperately need. I love seeing how extremely thankful our patients are for us. I also love seeing all of the care and dedication from our gracious volunteer physicians, staff, and donors! It is truly amazing!"

Ali Sanders
Development Coordinator

“Since joining OHHRF in 2022, our team has continuously shown me the incredible things we can do for our patients and introduced me to the wonderful donors and dedicated employees who help make our mission a reality.”
