Client Care Coordinator and Administrative Manager
Gail immigrated from South Africa to Canada in 2012 and now lives in North Vancouver. Having studied Microbiology, she spent over 20 years working for a biotechnology company doing research and development. This R&D work included developing several monoclonal antibodies, as well as developing dendritic cells for the use in immunotherapy. In addition, it involved managing the cell culture activities in the production of EPO (Erythropoietin) using genetically engineered BHK cell line for commercial use.
In the years leading up to immigration, Gail worked as a medical office assistant for an orthopaedic doctor. She then took a meander through the world of SAP (Systems, Applications, and Products) and also worked as an optician for a time. Now she’s extremely happy to have returned to her first love – helping people though medical advances.
Gail joined CTOAM as client care coordinator and administrative manager. Among other important things, she’s here to help ensure all of our clients have the best experience possible with their cancer care. Aside from work, Gail fills her life by doing pottery, reading books, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends. Family is one of the most important things to Gail, having come from a large family, and she makes it a priority.
