.....support formulation development in the pharmaceutical industry by enabling us to better understand how medicines might dissolve in the body.
.....my dad – he nurtured my love of science and was also my A-level chemistry teacher! I am also in awe of the amazing Pharmacist, Dr Wendy Jones, who was awarded an MBE in 2018 for services to mothers and babies through her specialist work on drugs in breast milk.
.....outdoor adventures with my son, husband and dog, especially dips in the sea, running and cycling! I also enjoy reading novels and learning about how incredible our bodies are, particularly when it comes to growing small humans and infant feeding.
.....I am interested in how medicines work, how they are made and how the world around us can be understood & used to maintain & enrich health.
.....getting to spend time thinking and solving problems, learning and figuring out how new equipment works, making potions and crystals in the lab, and challenging my brain to persevere when it’s finding it tough!
.....make a positive contribution to the world of pharmacy and healthcare by using science to empower humans to make the very best choices for themselves.
.....would be to take time to stop, breathe and enjoy all the many adventures you are about to go on, instead of worrying so much about where you’re heading and whether you are good enough.
.....A-levels in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths, a Year In Industry at AstraZeneca, an MPharm degree at University of Nottingham, a pre-registration training year and pharmacist registration with RPSGB / GPhC, a postgraduate certificate in Pharmacy Practice at University of East Anglia and I’m currently undertaking a part-time PhD in Chemistry at Durham University.
