Expertise

I became really passionate about the pricing and reimbursement environment when I was still in university. I had the opportunity to do an internship at Pfizer in market access. After working in the regulatory environment, I Joined E&A consultants in 2018.

Market access is really the last step to give the patient access to their medication. I think a really important message in our job, and moreover our goal is to make the healthcare system more accessible for every one of us.

Within this mindset, I’m really interested in the pricing and reimbursement environment.  Working together as a team is one of the key elements for success in market access.

Expertise

During my studies I always had a profound interest in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as in the aspect of the patients wellbeing. At my first job at UCB pharma, I learned a lot about drug development and quality control during its entire lifespan. In this ever changing business, the core value will always be to make people better through innovation and affordable healthcare. By working again in a pharmacy and having day to day contact with patients, the interest in helping people and improving the healthcare system really got my attention. It is with great pleasure that I am part of pricing and reimbursement strategies, at a level where a real difference can be made.
