Katy Shearer

Grant and Bid Writer

I am a UCL graduate (Msci Natural Sciences) currently working as a strategist in the healthcare communications sector. My interest in public health was sparked during my time at university. Although I loved the opportunity to gain a specialised scientific understanding, the my most rewarding experiences were using my knowledge to help others, such as my time working as an international youth volunteer in public health and environmental awareness in east Africa. I continued my voluntary work when I returned to the UK as a laboratory assistant in the health and welfare organisation The Loop. Through my position as grant and bid writer at AHO, I hope to further my understanding of global health and contribute to its efforts in reducing health inequalities.
