Tara Littlejohn Gonzales, Sr. Medical Director, Specialty Care / Chair – DEI at Sobi, NA
The field of Pharmaceuticals is ever evolving; I never get bored. – Tara Gonzales
PREEMIEWORLD: How long have you been working in your field?
TARA: 13 years
PREEMIEWORLD: Why did you choose your current profession?
TARA: Children are our most precious resource. They come into the world with potential limited by only the confines we as adults place on them. I became a Pediatrician to help all children maximize their potential. I am currently a Medical Director for a company that helps to actualize these values. So working in this field allows me to make a greater impact on the entire pediatric community.
PREEMIEWORLD: What do you want other professionals to know about what you do?
TARA: Helping to get innovative therapies to improve the lives of the patients who need them is a blessing for which I am grateful and do not take for granted. I am an advocate for anyone who is under represented or marginalized. I will always use my voice to do good works in the interest of all children (and adults too).
PREEMIEWORLD: What advice do you give to preemie parents?
TARA: You are your child’s greatest advocate. Never let anyone limit their potential. Children will always exceed our expectations no matter where we set the bar. Aim high.
PREEMIEWORLD: Fun Facts: Tell us a fun or quirky fact about you.
TARA: Marvel over DC forever.
