For over 10 years Fiona pursued her passion for empowerment through knowledge conducting research in academic and pharmaceutical laboratories. While designing and running experiments in RNA biochemistry, oncology, and developmental neurobiology, she mentored research team members in medical communications, guiding them through data analysis and synthesis into peer-reviewed papers and presentations. Motivated by a desire to see scientific research serve the public good through effective communication, she transitioned fully into the medical communications field in 2010.
Working for medical communications agencies and a not-for-profit patient organization, she has created public awareness raising posters, advanced pharmaceutical sales force training materials, a road map for evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, guidance for regulators and ministries of health, advocacy tools, and more. Fiona enjoys combining her analytical research skills, extensive biomedical knowledge, and joy in crafting language to create tailored medical communication solutions that meet the precise needs of her clients.
