I’ve just come on board at Manta Ray Media. I have worked in heath and science communications for more than 20 years, after doing a PhD in cancer research. My expertise is in developing and delivering communications and stakeholder engagement strategies, including key messaging, brand and visual identities. I have been bought in to complete their communications offering and its great to be part of a team that does such inspiring work.

I worked with Steve and Dave on educational materials for developing countries on HIV/AIDS back in the day at Wellcome. They were good times and we’ve remained in touch ever since. After that, I moved to Wellcome’s press office to work on some of the biggest science stories of our time including the human genome project. While I was there I also helped launch a developing countries bioethics scheme in Brazil. After Wellcome, I went on to set up the comms function at UK Biobank – one of the world’s biggest studies in health and disease.

I’ve worked in Director level since 1995 at the Human Tissue Authority, which regulates organ, tissue and cell donation, and Health Research Authority, which regulates research. Most recently I worked at the HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust where I led campaigning for HIV prevention, HPV vaccination and sex and relationships education.

Manta Ray does amazing work to help global health and development organisations communicate effectively, and they do so by using their expert knowledge of the sector. The work they do and their approach are a fantastic fit with my interest, expertise and values.
