Kathryn White, director and medical writer

I am a freelance writer based in the beautiful Chiltern Hills. My passions in life are writing, horses, yoga and being outdoors. I began writing as a child and had the wonderful opportunity to spend a week at former poet laureate Ted Hughes’ house on a creative writing course. I had my first piece of work, written during this magical week, published in the school newsletter. The most enjoyable part of my PhD was writing my thesis – the part that most of my peers loathed!

In 2005, I combined my love of horses with that of writing when I was invited to write a regular column for online equestrian magazine, Eventing Worldwide. The column described my adventures as an amateur eventrider alongside my husband Ian. I also wrote several other pieces for this website, and interviewed some of my heroes from the sport of eventing.

As a clinical research scientist in the pharmaceutical industry, my favourite tasks were writing documents to support the clinical development process, and preparing presentations, so I moved into medical writing.

In 2008 I became acutely aware of how short life is following Ian’s untimely death from a brain tumour. This prompted me to take the leap and set up my own business, Cathean Ltd, a thriving medical writing consultancy, with equestrian and creative writing as niche aspects. I love what I do and I still get a thrill when I see a manuscript or article published. I work with fantastic clients and across a wide variety of projects.

I provide a bespoke and personal service to produce high quality documents that meet my client’s requirements.
