About the speakers
Sarah McKay is a neuroscientist with a PhD from Oxford University.  After moving to Australia in search of sunshine she spent five years conducting neuroscience research before deciding to follow her bliss of talking about science rather than doing it.  Now, she combines raising her two boys on Sydney’s Northern Beaches with a career in freelance medical writing.  In 2013 Sarah launched a blog where she specialises in breaking down neuroscience research into simple actionable steps to improve brain health.  She blogs about living a brain healthy lifestyle at Your Brain Health, and runs a Walking Book Club. Through her blog she has attracted numerous new clients and opportunities both on- and off-line.

Michelle Guillemard is an experienced medical writer and an award-winning digital content manager. She has worked for some of the biggest names in health and medicine, such as the British Medical Journal and Elsevier. As well as owning her own freelance health writing business, Michelle runs Health Writer Hub, a global community with resources for writers who specialise in health and medicine. Michelle is passionate about online networking and career development, is a health writing mentor, and her blog on Health Writer Hub provides advice and perspective into the art of health writing. Michelle lives a busy life on Sydney’s northern beaches with her husband and two little girls under 3.
