I am a microbiology quality assurance and control specialist who helps pharmaceutical and FMCG companies align and optimize processes so they can release product on time while operating in an audit ready state so they can reduce the frequency of OOSes and the number of audit observations and save money.
I love sharing my knowledge and staying up to date with developments in pharmaceutical and food manufacturing industries especially rules, regulations and guidelines.
A little about my 15+ year career
Within five years of beginning my career I’d risen to Senior Microbiologist and lead a team of 12-15. From there, I moved into project based work as a Quality Assurance Microbiologist. Following that, I moved into a Microbiology Team Leader role. A redundancy in 2012 birthed this website. In 2021 I moved into a FMCG quality coordinator role in the dairy industry.
I’ve worked in both generic sterile (FDA) and novel non-sterile production (TGA/EU) plants where I’ve validated equipment and processes, trained staff, conducted audits and developed my love of documentation.
My expertise lies in USP1116, ISO13408, ISO14644, ISO14698, ISO17025, ISO9000 and PIC’s. I am a capable auditor and certified small groups trainer.
