I have always enjoyed writing, for my own pleasure, and whenever the opportunities presented itself in academics or career. I worked in Publication Planning in pharma for 5 years, creating abstracts and publications, editing versions, and crafting strategic plans. Prior to that, I was in Clinical Operations for 10 years, and honed my writing skills through study document creation for items like monitoring plans, clinical study reports, protocols, and training materials for sites. I enjoyed this so much that I also sought out extra work on regulatory documents like briefing books and safety and efficacy sections of drug applications. I didn't have to search too hard, my skills and work ethic had colleagues actively seeking me out for assistance on their projects. Now, I am interested in paving my own career path.
