About Me

I'm a full-time freelance writer / ghostwriter for the healthcare and medical marketing industry. My main writing niche today is substance abuse and recovery, though my expertise extends to a range of healthcare topics including health, weight loss, nutrition, fitness, and many more.

My writing experience began with writing professional book reviews for magazines and websites. In 2011, I started writing exclusively for the healthcare industry.

My personal interests include reading, running, strength training, and cooking. I read for several hours every day, and stay on top of all healthcare industry news.
