I am a biologist by education. As I was growing cell cultures and multiplying yeast—day in, day out—I realized this could not be it. I found my passion for writing and communicating science and quickly started invading some unknown territories of scientific communication. During this time, I also joined EMWA. Coming to the industry straight from academia was a challenge, but all big and small experiences helped me carve my path and led me to Medical Minds where I work as a medical and regulatory writer since September 2016. The journey is still on.
