Amber DeVries

Amber has been with ENCORE Research Group since 2007 and along the way she has acquired many hats. She is the site manager, a clinical research coordinator, the office party planner, and a birthday card making committee of one.

Amber graduated with a degree in biology from Jacksonville University. While there, she played on the women's soccer team, and between games she met her husband Kyle, who pitched for the JU baseball team. She still gets such a kick out of soccer that she is currently coaching a team of 5 year olds.

If you think Amber isn’t occupied enough at work and play, she also stays busy with two active sons and a toddler girl!

Shannon Schultenover

Shannon Schultenover works at the River City Clinical Research branch of Encore Research Group.  She has been with the Encore Research community for one and a half years now and is currently a Coordinator in Training and phlebotomist.

Shannon loves to spend time with her son. Together they enjoy arts and crafts and playing superheroes. Shannon also loves to run and play her favorite sport, soccer.  Speaking of sports, Shannon is an avid Chicago fan. She loves all of the Chicago teams and cheers for the Bears, Cubs, Blackhawks and Fire.

Shannon may be an expert on superheroes and villains, but now it’s time to start buffing up on her Disney princesses. She and her husband are expecting their second child this coming January 2017 and IT’S A GIRL!
