Stephaine Merrifield

Account Manager

London

Stephanie began her career with a Bachelor’s degree in Sport Rehabilitation from St. Mary’s University, Twickenham, London, for which she gained a first class honours. She then established her own business working as a Sport Rehabilitation Practitioner, and secured the role of Head Practitioner for Teddington Rugby Football Club. She also worked as part of the medical team for the Rugby Football Union (RFU), and as a part-time practitioner across a number of clinics for chiropractic treatment and neuro-rehabilitation, as well as health and fitness studios, and as the onsite Corporate Practitioner at Dairy Crest. In this role, Stephanie developed both her management and organizational skills, having to organize and attend meetings with all her teams, as well as implementing programs to improve practice and assessment procedures. In particular, she successfully introduced concussion screening protocol at Teddington RFC. However, her passion for both science and organization combined, influenced a career transition into medical communications where she took up the role of Senior Account Executive working across a wide range of projects to provide support from briefing to development. Her responsibilities range from social media management, presentation development, minute-taking, client liaison and conference planning. In her role as Account Manager for the AML Global Portal, Stephanie ensures the day to day smooth running of the portal by managing time-lines and budget planning, coordinating the digital maintenance and development of the portal and liaising with the IT team to implement changes, as well as planning and organizing the Steering Committee meetings. In addition, she manages the wide array of administrative tasks associated with conference coverage, from travel logistics for the AML Global Portal team (including writers, managers and the film crew) to liaising with key opinion leaders both before and after. Stephanie also works in a similar role across the Multiple Myeloma Hub and manages a number of other clients.
