Professional Profile

Through my work in GP practice, medicines regulation and the pharmaceutical industry I have developed substantial knowledge of the steps required to get a health technology to market as well as contacts in the following areas:

• clinical research,
• regulatory requirements,
• health economics (getting funding from groups like PHARMAC),
• market access programmes.

I’m currently consulting in health technology innovation, and am enthusiastic to see great NZ health tech startups succeed internationally.

My previous roles have included clinical practice in public and private health systems in South Africa and the UK; clinical risk management in the New Zealand medicines regulator Medsafe; science and technical manager for Medicines New Zealand and General Manager of Medicines New Zealand.

I am able to define a clear and pragmatic strategic direction for projects and companies as well as identify meaningful opportunities to ensure successful delivery on potential.
