Who We Are
Our consulting team was founded in Seattle by Rita Simmons, Ph.D. in September 2017.
Following a 30-year Navy career, with 20 years of executive experience, Dr. Simmons turned her drive for innovation and excellence into a company focused on helping businesses succeed.
Dr. Simmons integrated her breadth of experience ranging from military operations, to the research lab, to the boardroom to create Novelle. This translated into multifaceted capabilities that can support businesses at diverse levels of development. These capabilities range from executive level support in business development to research support in the field.
Since founding Novelle, Dr. Simmons has compiled an interdisciplinary team of high-quality scientific and research professionals that are experts at identifying clients’ needs and developing solutions.
