Teri has worked with Dr. Rich since March 2001. She started as a clinical research coordinator and became certified by the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) in April 2003. In October 2012, after a restructuring in the office she became the research manager. Prior to working with Dr. Rich, Teri received her certificate from Southern Oregon University in their medical office program (PROMPT) and her dental assisting certificate from Rogue Community College. After receiving her certificates she worked in neurology for 4 years as a file clerk, medical assistant and then a clinical research coordinator. In her spare time she enjoys outdoor activities, gardening, decorating/renovating her home, spending time with family and running after her 200 pound English Mastiff. And yes, he does drool!
Carly has worked for Dr. Rich since March 2012, as a Clinical Research Coordinator. Carly currently lives in Vancouver, WA with her family, husband Austin, son Chord, and their 2 dogs Neymar and Dez. Chord frequently graces the clinic with his infectious giggles and sparkling grin. In her free time, Carly enjoys trying new restaurants, cooking, gardening, reading, and spending time with friends and family. She would love to, one day, open her own food cart serving a variety of her favorite foods.
Tiffany graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelor of Science in Community Health Education in 2017. She has volunteered at Outside In getting some hands-on experience in the health field, working closely with the homeless community in Portland.

She strongly believes in helping the community grow and become a better way of life for individuals in the future.
