Sharon initially qualified as a pharmacist working in the fields of community pharmacy, health authority, academia and industry. She quickly realised that her interests lay in the ‘bigger picture’ and studied Public Health. She is now a registered generalist specialist in public health.
She combines both professions in her role with NHS Highland in Inverness where she is a Consultant in Pharmaceutical Public Health and she also teaches Pharmaceutical Public Health at undergraduate and postgraduate level with The Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen.
Sharon has been Chair of the Scottish Reference Group of Pharmacy Management since April 2017.
