About Me

I'm an SEO copywriter with a degree in biological science. Before writing, I was a science teacher for 15 years. So, I know how to write about health in a way that's engaging and easy to understand. I've written for NSW Health, UNSW Science and Kidspot, among other publications. My clients include news outlets, insurance groups, vitamin companies and universities. I write SEO friendly websites and long-form articles, newsletters, publications and blogs.

All of my work adheres to AHPRA guidelines and my research is referenced, from peer-reviewed journal articles.
