Hi, I’m Sarah!
Here are a few fun facts about me and why I’m passionate about inspiring and empowering people just like you to explore opportunities in STEM…
My career specialism:
Science education, particularly in pathology, cellular biology and biochemistry.
My current role:
Senior Medical Writer.
When not STEM-ing, you can find me…
A fabulous fun fact that blows my mind…
We are made of atoms that used to be stars.
My career path:
I graduated with a BSc (Hons) degree in Experimental Pathology from the University of Edinburgh, which included a research year exploring differential gene expression in human white blood cells.
Following that I studied part time for an MSc in Molecular Medicine, whilst working full time in Medical Education / Communication for pharmaceutical companies. This I did for a number of years before completing a Science PGCE at King’s College London and re-training as a Science teacher.
I taught for many years in various London and Hertfordshire schools before coming to the Isle of Man in 2017 to teach part-time at QEII and work as an Associate Lecturer for the Open University.
I have recently gone back into the Medical Education / Communication industry and am now working full-time as a Medical Writer again.
I love working in education and communication as it feeds my two passions – learning new and exciting things about Biology and talking to people about them.
If you love life, study biology, because that’s what it is!
