My journey

My entire career has been focused on developing independent medical education to educate physicians on new treatments coming to market and enable them to offer the best treatment possible to their patients to improve outcomes.

My journey in patient advocacy and patient engagement began in 2019 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Having dedicated my professional life to healthcare and physician education, I felt the urgent need for better community support for cancer patients. I created a foundation for cancer patients in Spain and led the organization for 2 years.

I was fully responsible for the development of all educational materials and created two digital platforms with information on drug accessibility and reimbursement information along with other patient resources on disease awareness. I advocated for earlier testing and improved access to treatments. I established and managed relationships with patient organizations, medical institutions, pharma global stakeholders and public health administration and drove synergies. I managed advocacy activities focusing on the patient experience and patient journey and led multi-functional teams and assessed patients´ needs and defined creative solutions. I was fully responsible for all fundraising.

During this time, I also volunteered in The Synergist Global Group acting as co-lead of the Patient and HCP Education and Awareness working group. I helped develop disease agnostic adaptable patient tools to empower patients educating about precision medicine and biomarker testing to increase shared decision-making. I worked with various umbrella patient organizations from around the globe to evaluate their existing resources and tools to leverage them for other groups. I collaborated during this co-creation with stakeholders from the industry to integrate their opinions including patient engagement teams, medical affairs, public affairs, communications and market access.
