About me: Louise is an NHS clinician with a speciality interest in plastic and reconstructive surgery. She studied medicine and neuroscience at Oxford University and Imperial College London, and is a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. She spent seven years working in NHS hospital trusts throughout west London and Oxfordshire before embarking on her MBA journey with the support of the Service & Society Scholarship.
She is committed to a career delivering transformational change in healthcare, leveraging her experience in frontline healthcare delivery from a more proximal vantage point in healthcare management, innovation and investment. Her core values are that business should create value for society, and profit should be a product of this; that business should be actively sustainable; and that those in leadership positions should represent the diversity of the people they serve.
Louise is the LBS 2021 healthcare conference lead, is currently participating in the Yale Healthcare challenge and Turner MIINT impact investing competition and is an active member of the Debate and Public Speaking Club. Alongside her MBA she remains a practicing clinician, and holds a position on the British Medical Association patient liaison committee. She is a runner, water sports enthusiast, and occasional yogi.
Three topics I can be approached about: How an LBS MBA can add value to your healthcare career (leadership and management, innovation and startups, impact investing); non-traditional backgrounds applying to LBS; diversity at LBS
