Speaker Bio

After qualifying as a nurse, Carrie specialised in Multiple Sclerosis (MS), working for the MS Society managing a specialist respite centre and then moving on to manage the MS Nurse partnership programme during the Risk Sharing Scheme launch.

After becoming involved with Homecare through the MS service, Carrie moved from a nursing role into the Homecare Industry working with a leading Homecare Service provider, where she worked as an account manager across several different specialties.

Eventually realising she had no idea how pharmaceutical companies work Carrie decided to try to gain experience in this sector. Now over 10 years later, Carrie remains in the Pharmaceutical Sector as a Customer Supply Chain manager at Abbvie where she has been for 7 years.

Carrie is currently Chair of the ABPI Supply Chain project team for Homecare.

Carries claim to fame is being part of the development and opening of the very first Nursing Home in the Czech Republic. An experience that has stayed with her, and makes her continually grateful for the healthcare available in this country, despite its challenges.
