With over ten years of experience in promotional marketing, content creation, research, writing, and editing, I am proficient in developing high-quality content for medical professionals, consumers, and the government. My academic background in science, journalism and public health, combined with my experience working closely with medical specialists, has given me skills to effectively communicate complex medical concepts to lay audiences. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your project.
I am a medical writer with 20+ years of global experience working in both Industry and Academic settings. I have worked within and for healthcare communication agencies and clients in the US, Canada, Europe and Australia.
