Final year pharmacy student, Queen’s University Belfast

I am currently a final year MPharm student at QUB and work part-time in pharmacy procurement and manufacturing at Victoria Pharmaceuticals (VP). I did a summer placement with VP when I was in 2nd year at university and was subsequently offered a position.

My passion for science and wanting to help others prompted me to study pharmacy.

I love pharmacy because I enjoy the science behind it - how drugs work and what they do in the body. I also love being able to help other people and maybe even change their life for the better!

I find that pharmacy in Northern Ireland is such a close knit community, much like a family where everyone is so friendly and supportive of one another!

Finally, I am a Pharmacy Student Ambassador for QUB and will be a pre-reg pharmacist for GSK in 2021-22.
