I hold a masters’ degree in biochemistry from the University of Copenhagen. For many years I worked in the pharmaceutical industry, contract research organizations (CROs) and the Danish Medicines Agency – focusing on drug development, patient safety and regulatory affairs/-compliance (e.g. at Novartis Healthcare, Eli Lilly, Lundbeck, LEO Pharma and ALK Abelló).
In 2012, I changed my focus from pharmaceuticals to tissues and cells – and took to up a new position as Quality Manager/Responsible Person in a dynamic and entrepreneural business environment within the fertility industry (European Sperm Bank).
Over the next eight years, I documented all processes and shaped the company quality/privacy framework, through the development, implementation and maintenance of a quality management system/information security management system (modelled on ISO 900X/2700X, EU/GxP etc.), and later – in my capacity as DPO/GDPR Specialist (in Denmark, the UK and Germany), a full GDPR compliance-package (modelled on ISO 27701/900X/29100 etc.).
With an eye for the strategic, tactical and operational level, I led the organization in a common direction, with a common understanding, and common language regarding quality, safety and compliance. European Sperm Bank has since experienced huge growth with additional branches in Denmark, the United Kingdom and Germany. With an innovative approach, high quality products and a comprehensive customer service, the organization has become a brand-leading sperm bank in Europe and a pioneering player in the growing fertility industry.
In Sep. 2020, I launched my own consulting company to offer a number of services within the professional disciplines I like so much.
My lifelong experience from regulated industries demanding high standards of business ethics, patient/consumer safety and quality management, has taught me, that the long-term success of an organization, originates from client satisfaction and loyalty – obtained through high-quality products and services. As a consultant, I intend to work towards this goal, providing cost-effective and innovative solutions, and fulfilling the needs and expectations of customers and other interested parties.
I have a proactive, structured, and analytical approach to my work, and thrive in a dynamic and international environment, managing a wide range of tasks and stakeholders – with a large interface across the organization. With an eye for detail, accuracy and compliance, I drive operational excellence, create results, and deliver high-quality solutions (products and user experience), using the appropriate tools and competences. I have an extensive network – nationally and internationally, which I will use actively for knowledge sharing, and solving specific tasks for clients.
I am able to listen, coach and motivate – and possess excellent communication skills, enabling me to interact at all levels, build sustainable relations, and present/communicate complex matters in a professional and straightforward way. With a strategic and business-focused attitude, I think across departments, solutions and professional areas, and have solid experience with value creation in fast-paced environments with competing and changing priorities.
