Lovely to meet you all – I’m Mickaela with VitaGUM.
Social entrepreneurship, especially in the medical and developing-country spheres, has always been a passion of mine. Previously a Manager at Bain & Company in London and Analyst at McKinsey in Canada, I’ve been fortunate to have had the opportunity to leverage those skills in service of numerous social ventures including Engineers Without Borders, Ddx (medtech), Zephx (medtech), Pinkspiration (community construction), 2JEvents (community lettings) and IRSAM (NGO with consultative status with the UN).
Originally from Canada, I’ve been in the UK for nearly 8 years. I am currently based in Oxford and in my penultimate year of the graduate-entry medicine programme having previously graduated with an MPhil in Economics from Oxford, and BSc Biophysics from McGill.
Looking forward to getting to know you and your ventures!
