Employee Quote – Values – Shawn Elms

Shawn Elms, Ph.D., Director of Field Medical Affairs

Tell us about your role at Braeburn.

I am the Director of Field Medical Affairs. When health care professionals have questions about a therapy that needs a scientific/medical answer, they ask Medial Affairs. I manage and maintain the relationship between our field scientists and external health care professionals. I also try to be transparent in communicating to our colleagues internally so that they may understand what the reality is for patients and providers.

What does our purpose mean to you?

Being able to help health care professionals in their efforts to facilitate recovery in patients with OUD is something that gets you up in the morning! I became a scientist rather than a physician and in doing that I gave up on my chance to personally care for patients. With my work at Braeburn, I feel closer than ever to the recovery journey for patients with OUD.

How would you describe Braeburn's culture?

Inclusive. It is in part due to our size, but I’ve rarely been in a corporate environment with humility amongst employees. Regardless of if you are the CEO or the newest hire, respect is given immediately. We’ve all got something to give, and Braeburn respects each person enough to let them bring that to bear.

What is one of the best benefits at Braeburn?

The maturity with how Braeburn treats their employees when it comes to work environment and vacation. I can work from my home and travel when needed for my work. When it is time to take a break and spend more time with my family, I can do it without anxiety about how many vacations days I have. Be a professional, get your work done and take off the time you need to recharge your batteries. It’s progressive and employee centric, and I appreciate it.



Braeburn is proud of our purpose and our people. We believe that our people are the key to unleashing Braeburn’s full potential. Therefore, we’ve designed our total rewards with our employees’ best interest in mind to offer a variety of benefits from health and financial, to work/life balance and wellness programs to meet each individual’s needs.
