Professional Experience

I'm an MPH-level health writer and editor with more than 500 articles published on highly visible health information websites. Most of my work has included translating complex medical information into plain-language, actionable articles for a consumer-based audience. I also have experience creating health education materials including brochures, presentations, and patient handouts. I understand and interpret scientific studies, and I have experience working with subject matter experts. I have written across all medical disciplines, but my specialty areas include pregnancy, diabetes, cancer, fitness, nutrition, weight loss, food safety, childhood obesity, preventive health, women's health, and oral health.
