Q&A

Within Kiterocket, what are you known for?

Giving great advice and always being willing to lend a hand whenever or wherever I can.

What is it you love about your practice area, and why did you choose to focus on this industry expertise?

Science, medicine and storytelling are my passions. Combining all three to translate complex concepts into clear, concise and easy-to-understand language is my life’s ambition. Albert Einstein once said: “If you can’t explain something simply, you don’t really understand it well enough.” This is my motto.

What’s your proudest career moment or accomplishment to date?

While I have many proud moments, my greatest accomplishment was developing ADC Review. Second to that was supporting the introduction and launch of a drug for treating patients with HIV/AIDS in six European countries. This drug reduced a patient’s daily required medication intake from a handful of pills to just two tablets. It literally changed people’s lives overnight, improving their quality of life. Being part of that was very rewarding.

How would your colleagues describe you in three words?

Writes. Long. Articles.

What inspires you to get up every morning?

Simple. I love my job. Continuing my quest for knowledge in science, medicine and drug development, so that I can help clients tell their stories, is very rewarding. Knowing that I have passed my zest for learning on to my family is also an added benefit.
