What do you wish you’d invented?

Something which still hasn’t been invented – a cure for cancer. 3 of my 4 grandparents died from cancer and it would have been nice to have had a little more time with them.

What do you love about working here?

The skill, ability and intellect of the people that I have met here. It’s been inspiring, long may it continue.

What has made you proud in your career?

The relationships that I have formed through my career and the help I have been able to provide to current and former team members to help them develop and succeed.

Why did you choose to work in the life sciences industry?

For me it was the challenge of working in a new environment which makes each day an exciting new prospect and challenge.

Where were you before?

Group Commercial and Legal Director for Capita PLC and before that, Vertex Data Limited. Both outsourcing service provider companies. Before moving into the industry I was a private practice lawyer at a media practice, Wiggins LLP.

What’s your favourite book?

Wow, that’s a tough one, so many good books. For me, Harry Potter for the way in which it inspired so many children to read more.
