Powerful prose informed by humor is a specialty. I'm also great at helping companies discover their voice, and at ghost-writing content on behalf of C-level execs.

Strong experience in social media for messaging and branding, as well as message advocacy.

Author of "Cancer for Christmas: Making the Most of a Daunting Gift" about how an empowered patient can be his/her own patient advocate while managing medical care.
