My Story

Before starting my career as a medical writer, I worked as a pharmacist in a community pharmacy, interacting with patients, caregivers, and other healthcare professionals in a daily basis.

Working in a public-facing role taught me how to communicate effectively with people with all sorts of backgrounds and education levels.

I believe that medical writing is an ever-changing subject, and that’s why I’m an active member of the European Medical Writers Association (EMWA), where I get continuous professional development and resources that help me improve my skills.

I’m passionate about digital marketing and I feel that technology is changing the way people behave and interact with companies in every sector, including pharma, biotech, health, and medical industries.

Beside scientific expertise, I can bring copywriting and SEO knowledge to your projects, so you can create better content for your audience.
