Problem solver. Critical thinker. Trainer. Auditor. Investigator. I am all of these and more.
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 peoject based work as a Quality Assurance Microbiologist. Following that, I moved into a Microbiology Team Leader role.
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.
A role redundancy brings me here – acting as a pharmaceutical microbiology consultant blogger. This keeps my regulatory and guideline knowledge relevant and up to date as I seek a new laboratory.
My day job is one of IT Technical support where I get to flex my critical thinking, documentation, communication and problem solving skills while providing a high level of customer service.
My expertise lies in USP 1116, ISO 13408, ISO 14644, ISO 17025 and PIC’s. I am a capable auditor and trainer.
I find freely sharing my knowledge makes me more efficient – the more others know, the less work I have to do. This frees me up for additional projects and tasks. It’s a win-win situation. Ideally, I’m seeking a role that is NOT matched 100% to my skills and abilities. Otherwise, what’s the challenge?
Three words that my best friend uses to describe me: loyal, dedicated, honest.
