Hello. I’m Dr. Gertrude Nonterah.

Fun fact: I did not plan on becoming a writer, speaker, or author when I grew up.

I wanted to become a pediatrician.

I didn’t become a pediatrician but I did get degrees in biology, and nursing and a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology. (Not too shabby, eh?)

These days I work in medical communications and marketing at a large biotech company.

A few other fast facts about me:

  1. I curated a list of books on writing, careers, and personal development from authors I enjoy. Click this link to go to the book list. 
  2. I run two websites – The Bold PhD and Medical Writer HQ.
  3. I’ve had the privilege of speaking at several academic institutions and to various professional groups on the topics of career development, career changepersonal branding, and thought leadership.
  4. I’ve been featured in articles on LinkedIn News and the Association for Women in Science.
  5. I’m active on LinkedIn and post weekly on YouTube. Come and say hi!
