Medical Operations Manager
Joined GSK in 2016
What is your background?
I graduated from the University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Pharmacy and a Master of Management. I worked as a Community and Compounding Pharmacist for a couple of years before joining GSK in 2016 as a Medical Representative. In 2017, I was presented with an exciting opportunity to join the Medical team, and I have since worked as a Medical Science Liaison and currently as a Medical Operations Manager.
What do you like about working with GSK?
GSK is an amazing place to work in because of its commitment to excellent world class research and utilising its scientific capabilities to ensure that improving patient outcomes is always the number one focus.
What does your role entail?
My role covers a variety of areas including but not limited to medical operations, compliance, governance and medical affairs, with the aim of ensuring that the medical team has the capabilities to function smoothly and cohesively as a unit.
What has been your career highlight so far?
In my time with GSK so far, it has been an absolute pleasure to have been given the opportunity to scientifically engage and support health care professionals all across New Zealand in order to create a better understanding of our respiratory portfolio of medicines.
What do you do when you are not at work?
Outside of working hours, I can be found walking my dog, gardening, watching American Football (Go Packers!!) and occasionally deliberating whether or not to pick up baking again.
