Writer & Editor

When you hire me, you get

Versatility. I write about all aspects of health. I specialize in women’s health, reproductive and sexual health, health behaviors, end-of-life care, disability rights, and the health of minority and underserved populations.

Creativity. Sometimes people know what they want, sometimes they don’t. I partner with you to conceptualize and define the editorial product and message that will work best for your organization.

Visibility. I will raise the visibility of your organization and its mission through newsletters, fact sheets, blog posts, annual reports, press releases, pitch letters, talking points, feature stories, monographs, book chapters, and other public education and development-related materials.

Efficiency. I cut my teeth in daily newsrooms. I turn around clean, sharp, and accurate copy—fast.

Reliability. I never accept an assignment that I cannot complete. And I never miss a deadline. Ever.

 Profile

I am a writer and editor, specializing in public education materials for hospitals, academic medical centers, foundations, and other health nonprofits.

Whether I’m profiling a program for a hospital website or introducing an initiative for a foundation magazine, I capture the human angle that brings critical health issues home.

I work from concept to completion, producing; blogs and other Web content, white papers, brochures, newsletters, magazine articles, book chapters, monographs, annual reports, fact sheets, press releases, and op-eds.

Having written for consumer, medical, and academic audiences, I am a pro at transforming technical, clinical-speak into text that is clear, crisp, and compelling. I create materials that are literacy–appropriate, culturally relevant, and geared to the reader-audience.

With my newsroom-training, I can:

  • thrive under pressure
  • collaborate easily
  • work well alone
  • grab any chance to brainstorm
  • respect deadlines and budgets
