What drew you to the Life Sciences Sector?
Everyone has a story or knows a loved one or close friend battling with a life debilitating disease. The Life Sciences Sector has allowed me the privilege to pursue a rewarding career that makes a difference in patients’ lives and to build inspiring workplaces and facilities where people can do their best jobs in finding the next cure, offering hope and delivering life changing therapies to those in need.
What do you love about it?
I love the diversity of project types that this sector offers and the opportunity to work with a wide range of Life Sciences clients doing important work to improve the lives of patients. From research and development laboratory facilities to manufacturing to administrative offices, the Life Sciences Sector offers many exciting project opportunities.
If I had to sum it up in one word it would be “values”. These caring values are reflected in the culture at JC&A and inspire colleagues to support each other in delivering exceptional project results for our clients across a broad range of sectors. I am excited to be part of this accomplished organization and to bring my 20 plus years of experience in the Life Sciences to the greater team!
