Professional Experience

With more than twenty years' experience, I specialize in explaining clinical and basic research findings to lay audiences. Human interest articles, profiles, service pieces, and "listicles" also are well within my capability. My secret? I humanize even the driest of topics. I strive to understand and promote my clients’ priorities. I do my utmost to establish deep rapport with my sources, whether they happen to be physicians, scientists, non-profit managers/executives, donors, or patients and their families. And I'm passionate about my craft.
