I have more than 10 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. My writing services span the entire product lifecycle, ie from regulatory writing to market access-related documents up to medical communications and medical education.
If you are in need for extra support, I can help you out with medical writing, editing, proofreading, and translating.
My main focuses are quality, flexibility and a nice personal contact.
