About Me

Auckland, NZ
I am a freelance medical writer with over 20 years' experience. My medical writing career started at Adis International in Auckland, New Zealand, where I was employed as a junior writer. I progressed through various roles over the next 7 years before embarking on my freelance journey not long after becoming a mum for the first time. I relish the variety of work that comes my way as a freelancer, working with clients across the globe covering a range of therapeutic areas and many different types of writing projects, across both publications and non-publications.

I am very happy to work in any therapeutic area, with the areas that I have worked in most recently including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, gastroenterology, mental health, metabolic diseases, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatology. I am available for large or small projects, and always welcome the opportunity to work with new clients.
