Jennifer Felipe, MA

Research Assistant

I am a Puerto Rican who was born in Belleville, New Jersey. My family moved to Miami Beach, Florida when I was 2 years old. I was raised with 2 olders brothers in a bilingual household, where family always found time for one another. Growing up, I learned to be optimistic and patient, two traits I live by and value to this day. After graduating from high school in 2007, I married my soulmate at 19, and we were blessed with two beautiful boys.

We relocated to Tucson, Arizona in late 2016, it was one of the best decisions of our lives! I was able to complete the Medical Assistant program at Pima Medical Institute in late 2018. Shortly after, I was blessed with the opportunity to work alongside the amazing team at Eclipse Clinical Research. An opportunity I am sincerely grateful for! When I am not in the lab processing samples of your blood, you can find me lifting heavy things at Crossfit, letting my paint brush tell a story on a canvas with an array of colors or blasting my music on max to free my soul!
