I have been personally involved in the management of a primary immune deficiency disorder since 2015. I look forward to supporting Immunodeficiency UK with my experience and skills of over twenty years in pharmaceutical marketing and communication. I have worked in the human and veterinary pharmaceutical industries and in the medical device industry since 1998. Initially in corporate roles, I then started providing freelance pharmaceutical marketing services in 2011. As part of my career journey, I have developed a special interest in health literacy over the past few years. I am passionate about simple patient communication to help improve health outcomes and make a positive impact on patients’ lives. This has led me to support Primary Immunodeficiency UK (now Immunodeficiency UK) as a volunteer since late 2020 with some of their newsletter content. In addition to my pharmaceutical marketing activities, I am also a qualified professional translator, English into French. I enjoy combining my commercial and linguistic expertise to help organisations understand French-speaking markets and communicate with their partners and customers. I live in Berkshire and when I am not working, volunteering or progressing my professional development, I enjoy spending time with my husband and my two children, cooking, baking, cake decorating and keeping fit, lately with mountain biking. I also have two cute house bunnies that keep me busy!
