Beth Ward


Professional Experience

Writer. Editor. Digital storyteller. Word crafter. Professional question asker with a particular interest in women's health, wellness and lifestyle, and portrayals of race and gender in the media. My passions include journalistic work that rattles readers, informs, makes them feel less alone. Also, the crafting and creation of powerful, engaging, consumer-driven content for clients such as Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Piedmont Healthcare, Sharecare, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Girls at Library and WebMD. As a content strategist, I prefer out-of-the boxing thinking, the kind that shakes, impacts, and engages.
