Hello. I’m Dr. Gertrude Nonterah.

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

I wanted to become a pediatrician.

Although I didn’t go to medical school, I did get degrees in biology, and nursing and a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology. (Not too shabby, eh?)

These days I spend my days working as a medical writer for a large biotech company.

When I’m not at my 9-5 job, I:

  1. Run The Bold PhD, a media and career coaching company that shows academics and PhDs how to leverage their skills and personal brands to land careers outside of academia.
  2. Record videos for the Gee Nonterah YouTube channel where I share insights on becoming a paid writer.
  3. Speak to Ph.D. students and scholars about personal branding, thought leadership, and career development. I’ve been invited to speak at the University of Oxford, Johns Hopkins University, University of California-Irvine, Brandeis University, The University of Florida, and the University of Southern California, amongst others.

I’m also pretty active on LinkedIn. Come and say hi.
