I have been a medical writer for the pharmaceutical industry for almost 20 years. My medical writing experience was initially gained from various roles I had withing GSK covering both regulatory documentation and medical information. 

I worked for 14 years as a freelance medical writer and my clients included major pharmaceutical companies, clinical research organisations and medical communications companies. Commissions included manuscripts, book chapters, clinical and scientific abstracts as well as clinical study reports, patient narratives, clinical overviews and other regulatory specific documents.

I am a member of the European Medical Writers Association (EMWA) Professional Development Committee and act as a mentor for those developing new EMWA workshops. I am an editor of the EMWA journal "Medical Writing" and a workshop leader for EMWA.

As a freelance medical writer I designed and presented in-house training courses on various aspects of medical writing for clients in the pharmaceutical industry.
