What is one thing people do not know by looking at you?

I’m a triplet with two beautiful sisters. Unfortunately, one of my sisters, Penelope, died from a brain tumour at 33. That makes me even more passionate about my work and communicating new innovations, which might make a difference in the lives of patients.


What is your proudest professional achievement?

Supporting the communication of two separate acquisitions at BTG plc which were announced on the same day, only a few days before BTG issued its financial results and in the middle of the Annual Report development. It was one of those ‘high five’ moments!


What motivates you at work?

Apart from delivering great client work, I find it highly rewarding to mentor the junior members of the team and see them achieve their ambitions.
