Having always enjoyed science, I decided to study biochemistry at university (Imperial College London) with the aim of pursuing a career in science. I enjoyed working in a lab, but my strengths lie in communicating science, so I went into academic publishing. I took a job as a Commissioning Editor, commissioning and processing the content for scientific journals. It was in this role that I learnt editing skills and how scientific research is published.

After 4 years, I moved into medical communications, which has allowed me to develop my creative skills and to have more input into the materials that I work on. I like focusing on the fine details and adding value to written communications.

I joined Oxford PharmaGenesis in 2018, and working alongside experienced senior editors gave me the opportunity to improve my editing skills greatly; I found their feedback and advice invaluable as I developed my own abilities. We’re a supportive team and we work closely, even though we are based across several offices.

Having variety in my work is very important to me; I am glad to be able to work on different accounts and to help to create different types of material in different therapy areas. It’s great to be able to collaborate with our Creative and Digital teams to produce exciting and attractive materials that will ultimately benefit patients.

I am based in the Cardiff office of Oxford PharmaGenesis; I enjoy being in such a lively city, with easy access to the coast and the Brecon Beacons.

Oxford PharmaGenesis has won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and has been recognized as a Great Place to Work, which shows that we’re successful in creating a rewarding and supportive environment to work in. I appreciate working within an independent company; we can keep our focus on our values and our aim of helping our clients to bring treatments to patients with unmet medical need.
