I have been a member of Stempra for much of my career and gained a lot from events and peer support. I joined the committee because I felt that the time was right to give something back.
I bring experience from a range of sectors – pharm, charity, government, NHS – and have used it to shape valuable events and resources for stempra training events. I am also keen to explore new avenues for sharing best practice amongst Stempra members.
I enjoy training and mentoring the next generation of science press officers, particularly in areas of digital PR, online engagement, content strategy and electronic word of mouth.
Stempra has many London-based members, but having worked for the Research Councils, I bring views from the South West; home to the UK Research Councils.
