A strong science background from an Honours Undergraduate degree and a research-based Master of Science, I moved towards the business side of things by joining a biotechnology company at the forefront of genetic sequencing.
In my role I was responsible for $3M of the business spread throughout the southeastern US in biotech, pharma and academic institutions. While primarily in a sales role, I was given autonomy to design unique marketing initiatives and travel for face-to-face meetings.
I moved on to do a co-op structured Health Services Management MBA with the goal of learning more about 'the business side of science'. I hope to gain valuable experience in a health management role, as well as in a consultant role working in the healthcare or biotech sector. Ultimately, with my love for research I envision myself in a role where I would be able to assist scientists in achieving their research goals.
