Team Leader.  Problem solver.  Critical thinker.  Trainer.  Auditor.  Investigator.

I love sharing my knowledge and staying up to date with developments in pharmaceutical manufacturing regulations and guidelines.

Within five years of beginning my career I’d risen to Senior Microbiologist and lead a team of 12-15.  From there, I moved into project based work as a Quality Assurance Microbiologist. Following that, I moved into a Microbiology Team Leader role.  A redundancy birthed this blog.

I’ve worked in both generic sterile (FDA) and novel non-sterile production (TGA/EU) plants where I’ve validated equipment and processes, trained staff, conducted audits and developed my love of documentation.

Presently I administer IT systems and provide technical support as a systems engineer.  This maintains my critical thinking, communication, documentation, communication and problem solving skills as I seek out a new lab to call home.

My expertise lies in USP1116, ISO13408, ISO14644, ISO14698, ISO17025, ISO9000 and PIC’s.  I am a capable auditor and trainer.

Three words that my best friend uses to describe me: loyal, dedicated, honest.

Another reason why you should add me to your team:

Regarding my critical thinking and problem solving abilities, I am in the top 93% of a comparison group of scientists.
