Why did you choose to pursue consulting?
I chose to pursue consulting for the little slices of freedom that come with it. This job allows me to travel to new places and attend formidable industry events across the country. The versatility of the job requires one to adapt to a new location, equipment, and situations.
How did you get into Consulting?
I considered consulting after a few years of working in the industry; dabbling with general manufacturing, formulation, and ultimately validation. Once I began craving to learn more about pharmaceutical equipment and processes, I naturally gravitated to consulting.

Consulting best practices, tips, or other career advice?
Maintain a healthy work life balance — I cannot overstate the importance of that. Reward yourself after completing a challenging project, and allocate time for yourself. Some schedules can be rough at times (especially for consultants); however, balance that out with an adequate reward for your hard work. Ultimately, remember that we work to live, not the reverse.
