Life-Sciences Graduate. Teacher. Researcher. Writer.


A highly motivated Neuroscience graduate, writer, researcher and Science Teacher driven by the passion for the subject, before which I was an Executive PA and Pharmacy Manager. Currently building on experience and technical skills. Good teaching acumen coupled with Excellent admin skills, thorough knowledge of all Microsoft Office programs, as well as proficiency in minute-taking and extensive albeit new experience liaising with clients. After a highly rewarding educational experience and different work/professional undertakings away from my areas of specialization, I am searching for opportunities that will increase my professional competence in my areas of interest and ultimately that will fully commit my time to progressing my life science teaching, writing and research ambitions and career on a full-time basis.
