My educational foothold as a Biomedical Scientist alongside my technical skills give me a unique perspective on the future of healthcare and allow me to locate possibilities that can extend to any industry. I am verbally fluent, can easily communicate with people, love networking and have an analytical and critical mind-set which helps locate and solve complex issues. Throughout my studies at Ghent University, I was employed in extracurricular activities which helped me develop my social, organisational and managerial skills along with strategic decision-making to achieve predefined goals. To further nurture the basics of these communication skills in a competitive and professional environment, I have taken on the great opportunity of working for QuintilesIMS/Sanofi as a Medical Sales Specialist | Scientific Advisor. Until now, this excellent experience has allowed me to further develop my medical knowledge, sales management and organizational skills - on top of the fine tuning of my intercommunication skills.
