Professional Experience

I specialise in global public health and co-lead the EMEA global public health team. I focus on the intersection of climate change and global public health. With over 30 years of experience managing multi-county, multi-language, and multi-cultural projects, I am dedicated to driving changes in global public health that save lives. My expertise lies in navigating the complexities of public health policies, advocating for sustainable health solutions, and inspiring action on climate-related health issues to improve health outcomes.

A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it isn’t open.

How'd you get here?

My journey in communications and marketing began in newsrooms. After managing the setup of Bloomberg newsrooms across Europe, I ventured into the early days of the Internet, helping companies reach media audiences online. This path led me to healthcare marketing and PR agencies, where I created virtual press offices and live-streamed healthcare events. This experience culminated in co-founding Hyderus, a strategic communications agency in the global public health arena. Working with profit and non-profit organisations, I have contributed to the missions of entities such as GSK, MSD, Sanofi, Roche, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and other notable organisations like Gavi and PATH.
