nDash Writer Profile for Valicia Burke-France

Valicia Burke-France


About Me

I am a life science Ph.D. and public health professional that is passionate about learning, sharing knowledge, and helping others. I have 4+ years of scientific research experience in addition to 7+ years in the development of content either for journal publication, dissertations, company programs and policies, one to 40-hour courses, hands-on workshops and, at a point, semester-long STEAM courses. 

I firmly believe in using the 4Cs of communication to ensure that every content I edit or create is clear, coherent, consistent, and correct. Promoting effective communication and reader engagement in life science and public health is my passion.

Things I like to do: practice yoga, read books, watch comedies, and play with my family (including my furbabies).
