Lynne Haughey, MSN, FNP-BC

Site Director
Lynne A. Haughey, MSN, FNP-BC began her career as a registered nurse in an Intensive Care Unit and within five years became Head Nurse. She progressed to become Director of Critical Care Nursing overseeing ICU, CCU, Telemetry, ICU step-down, and Dialysis Units at a local Rhode Island hospital. Lynne then became Director of Stratogen Health in RI, a comprehensive HIV/AIDS treatment center. While in this role, she began studies at the University of RI to pursue a Masters degree in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner. This also coincided with the establishment in 1993 of Omega Medical Research, now Velocity Clinical Research in Providence with her business partner Johnna Pezzullo, RN. Lynne has over 25 years of clinical research experience with extensive experience in patient recruitment, quality assurance, and management of research staff. She has served as Sub Investigator on most trials at our Providence site, with over 400 trials completed in this capacity. She believes that clinical research is and always has been a win-win proposition; patients are provided state of the art health care and medications, and providers of clinical research help develop cutting edge pharmaceuticals and earn a living doing it. What keeps her up at night is the overwhelming responsibility at the site level for everything a subject does, everything staff does and the enormous expectations and nuances every study holds. Lynne has a Whoodle (a soft coat Wheaton terrier and poodle) named Ruby and loves kayaking, hiking, boating, and beaching when not at work. She spends an inordinate amount of time at swimming pools as her children are both competitive swimmers who hope to make the Olympics some day. Although Lynne applied for a spot on TV’s Survivor, she was not chosen.
