Professional Experience

An editor never rests: approving an epidural during childbirth, I saw a grammar error on the consent form. Extended maternity leave now means new freelance availability. I've edited columns, books, manuals; I've also written for SAIL, Psych Today, New Woman, Women's Health. I can deliver.
