How do you think Sunovion is helping patients?

  • My niece suffers from epilepsy, and it is motivating to know that I work on a drug that may one day be an option for her
  • At Sunovion we put the patient at the center of everything we do—it's a big part of our culture. In fact, for many of us at the company, it's why we come to work

The culture and people at Sunovion are what make working here so rewarding and all-around fun.

Describe your career at Sunovion

I've worked at Sunovion just over seven years and have had the opportunity to work on the launch of Latuda® for schizophrenia in 2011, and then the launch of Latuda® for bipolar depression in 2013, and most recently the launch of Aptiom monotherapy indication in 2015. While my seven years at Sunovion have all been in marketing, I’ve had the opportunity to hold every position within the marketing function over those years. It’s been a great experience and opportunity to grow and develop along with some amazing products that have changed the lives of so many.
