Hi, I’m Deborah, and I recently joined Teamscope in as a Business Development Specialist.

Here's my story:

A long time ago two people met and fell in love. They got married and started a beautiful family in the wonderful land of Tanzania. After 3 beautiful children, this lovely couple decided there’s still room for one more. So, on a chilly Thursday evening on the 9th of August in 1990, a beautiful woman gave birth to an adorable little girl (in case you’re wondering who I’m talking about, it’s me. I’m the adorable little girl) in a small town at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro (the highest mountain in Africa, 5,895 meters above sea level) called Moshi.

Unfortunately, I didn’t spend a lot of time there when growing up since I traveled to boarding school in Kenya from a young age for my primary and secondary education. Halfway through secondary school, my parents moved to Malawi and of course, I tagged along. I spent a year there and decided to move back to Tanzania where I thought it would be cool to become a doctor (Also, I always wanted to become one). So, I did! I earned my degree in Medicine from the International Medical & Technological University in 2013 and went on to work in the Sexual and Reproductive Health sector.

In 2016, I decided to pursue a master’s degree, so I moved to Bulgaria for a year to study Business Administration. It is this combination of studies and skills that landed me in Teamscope today where I can help medical researchers better manage their patient data wherever its needed. I now live in the Netherlands and work in the Teamscope’s head office in Nijmegen.

What I do at Teamscope:

My role at Teamscope is to identify our customers’ pain and create value for them through solutions. I listen to our user’s pain points and translate their problems into feature requests for our product development team. In simpler terms, I get, grow and keep customers with the utmost respect for their needs.

Some other things you might want to know about me:

In my spare time, I like to take nature walks, enjoy some adult beverages (beer is my favorite), and sometimes I cook. Of course, I don’t limit myself to these activities, I’m spontaneous and ready to try out new things. Except skydiving. I’m acrophobic. You might see a video of me bungee jumping somewhere, I still can’t explain that. Oh, and I love cheese.
