Which team and area do you work/specialise in?

I work within the Medical Affairs and Medical Information team.

What are some of the typical roles you cover?

Typical roles I cover include Medical Science Liaison, Medical Affairs Managers and Medical Information jobs. 

What are the hot issues in your sector currently?

As the responsibilities of Medical Affairs professionals continue to evolve, it is paramount that that they always stay informed about how changes may impact them - a big topic now is Brexit and its potential implact on the Pharmaceutical sector. 

Who is your biggest idol / inspiration and why? 

I think to me an inspirational person is someone who faces challenges and find strength when they don’t think they have any more to give – people who are fighting cancer, going through treatments which leave them feeling ready to give up but keep fighting are inspirational to me!  

What is your greatest fear?

I have a big phobia of birds… it’s the feathers, the beak… just no. I guess my biggest fear would be stood in Trafalgar square with pigeons coming at me left right and centre. 

How would your friends describe you in three words?

Caring, funny and down to earth.

You’re stranded on a desert island – what one thing could you not live without?

This would have to be my children. they would have to come with me as I would miss them too much but saying that the idea of a little bit of peace and quiet does sounds nice!

What’s makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?

I value my candidates as individuals with different career aspirations and motivations and tailor my search accordingly. I fully appreciate the search for a new job can be daunting, so ensure I fully support my candidates throughout the whole process.
