time management

With a realistic planning and clear milestones, I have the skills to deliver the requested products on time, on target, and on budget.

Medical terminology

Last but not least, with 9+ years of international work experience, I have built a wealth of knowledge of medical terminology of cardiovascular diseases, oncology and haematology. I am well-informed about all stages of the publication process in journals and the importance of high-quality and flawless (educational) materials for (international) conferences and advisory boards as part of the corporate branding strategy.

The Hague, The Netherlands

Based in The Hague, The Netherlands, near the beautiful beach and dunes of Scheveningen, and fully equipped with all technology needed, I can do all this no matter where in the world you are. I am also available for in-house contracts in the The Hague area.
