I'm a research specialist (MLIS) with ten years' experience in health research, mainly topic scoping, keyword search, database management, and copy editing and proofing medical articles.
I have worked with the Economist Intelligence Unit (Bazian), the British Medical Journal, the University of Ottawa and several health charities.
I have created search strategies simple and complex for different purposes. I have search expertise with many databases (Medline, PubMed, Embase, Google, PsycInfo, Cochrane Library). I have 'just in time' search expertise when a rapid time-frame is required - my fastest searches take 15 minutes or less. My key area of expertise is health, drugs and medications and social topics, however I have applied my skillset to other areas as well.
My core values are integrity, innovation, freedom, creativity, compassion and learning.
I'm an amateur photographer (Photoshop Elements), web designer (Wix) and travel enthusiast. I have worked in Canada and the UK.
