Michelle’s career began in community pharmacy here in Australia more than ten years ago, and she qualified as a pharmacist in 2008, before making the move to the UK for a few years to work in the pharmaceutical industry. There she worked as a Global Medical Affairs Executive with a leading independent European specialty pharmaceutical company. Michelle returned to Australia in 2012, and has worked in Medical Information for Commercial Eyes since 2013. She now leads one of our Medical Information teams, ensuring that our clients’ needs are well catered for.
Michelle and her team handle enquiries from doctors, consumers, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals and prepare written responses involving literature reviews. Each of these tasks is subject to stringent quality standards and regulations – all of which can be audited at any time.
Michelle has significant experience in medical writing, including global and local standard responses, data on file, abbreviated prescribing information, product current awareness reports and training manuals, review of promotional materials according to the ABPI Code of Practice, the EFPIA Code, the Medicines Australia Code of Conduct and the Medicines New Zealand Code of Practice.
When Michelle is not hard at work she describes herself as a brunch buff, a vineyard enthusiast and a cake connoisseur who’s passionate about pastry and loves a good coffee. Michelle says, “life doesn’t revolve around food, but it should”. Michelle adores travelling and snapping photos along the way, the occasional spot of camping and tucking into a good book.
