I work as one of a great team with different skills and perspectives. Bayer has the people, the power and the flexibility to make good things happen.
Patients have to be able to afford the medicines they need. It took seven years to ensure UK funding for a multiple sclerosis medicine.
I have been asked by seriously ill patients: “Can you help me?” I want to make a difference. I want us to be able to answer: “Yes.”
Beyond the obvious – my family and my job – I love playing piano and I enjoy exploring the countryside on my mountain bike.
My children will tell you I am annoying because I insist they do their schoolwork and I am embarrassing because I dance to music playing on the radio.
Right now? Getting my son and daughter through their exams and still have them talking to me afterwards.

“When Bayer acquired Schering in 2007, the new head office was suddenly a two hour drive away. But I did not want to uproot my family and move.”
“In mergers and acquisitions, you usually have a choice: move with the job, or move on and find a new one.”
“But Bayer wanted to keep me. So I became field-based – which basically means an office at home and lots of travelling to customers.”
“Back then, home working was quite unusual – but Bayer showed surprising flexibility and impressive employee focus.”
“Innovation isn`t just for the lab - at Bayer, solving problems is what we do. It let me continue in a job I really love - that`s Bayer for me.”
