Director of Grants Management

In her 16 years at PMG, Nicole Greer has managed the administration, strategic plans, grants, and fiscal governance of five scientific research organizations including the Organization of Teratology Information Specialists (OTIS), American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology (ASCP), the Marcé Society, The University of Vermont Center on Rural Addiction (UVM CORA), and the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ACNP).

In her previous role as Executive Director, and in her current role as Director of Grants Management , her primary focus is to determine how OTIS can be most effective in meeting the needs of more women, especially those identified as at-risk, who have concerns about exposures for their unborn baby or breastfeeding infant. Nicole networks with OTIS affiliates to increase their database by conducting outreach programs to vulnerable populations. She works to expand OTIS’ services to all women, but especially those identified as at-risk, through strategically planning their efforts to provide services through in-person, telephone, chat, text, email, website, and their app, to deliver individual counseling to women of reproductive age before pregnancy, during pregnancy, and while breastfeeding. It is with Nicole’s unique breadth of experience that she also expertly facilitates the goals of the HRSA Maternal and Child Environmental Health Network (MCEHN) program.

Nicole has assisted in creating training and education for the OTIS network of affiliates to deliver the latest scientific research regarding substance abuse, prescription medications, environmental exposure, toxicities in common household products, and maternal medical conditions. She has expertise in serving as a liaison to government, corporation, and academia as it relates to foundation support, new science in the field, and opportunities for collaboration. Through her efforts, she has helped expand OTIS and strategically position it for future growth and impact.

In her role with UVM CORA, Nicole works with UVM faculty and staff and rural providers to expand addiction treatment capacity throughout Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, and New York. Nicole coordinates a team who supports and implements consultations, resources, trainings, and evidence-based technical assistance to healthcare providers and other staff. Each week, Nicole contributes to all aspects of center compliance, strategic planning, sub-awardee agreements, finances, reporting, application submissions, and communication related to this grant. This has included timelines, budget matters, task assignments, sustainability planning, tracking of data and allocating resources, as well as documenting performance measures and demonstrating both quantitative and qualitative impact specifically related to HRSA-requested programmatic goals. Nicole also serves as the liaison between the PI and the HRSA Program Officer.
