I enjoy working with global teams and putting my skills to work by leading projects.
I did not expect to be working in the pharmaceutical industry when I was in high school. I enjoyed science and went to university where I completed an Honours Bachelor of Science with a minor in French. While I was in university, I worked in research labs. There I improved my practical lab skills and learned necessary science research skills. I applied for a job with Amgen in the area of safety and regulations. I worked there for a year before moving into my current position. I’m still learning new things on the job and look forward to the next opportunity.
Always keep an open mind. Remember that you do not need to know who you want to be now. Explore your options and opportunities.
I enjoy yoga and swimming.
I monitor the side effects of Amgen’s medication to ensure that they remain safe and effective. I work with Health Canada to ensure that Amgen remains compliant as a drug manufacturer.
