Professional Experience

As a versatile writer and editor, I cover health care, a field in which I have worked or written about for 15 years, education, law, business, lifestyle, design, children and families, and general interest. I've written cover stories, features, profiles, blogs and Web content for national, international and regional magazines and online publications. I translate scientific and medical research for the lay reader, covering medicine, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, fitness, nutrition, and insurance issues. I'm the author and editor of more than 40 children’s scholastic books and other educational materials. I write press releases, newsletters, brochures and other marketing materials, content for CD-ROMS and slide presentations for a wide range of business needs. I ghostwrite articles and books for top business executives, physicians and attorneys. I’m dedicated to consistently delivering clean, on-target copy on time, every time. Visit me at:
