Health and Wellness Content Writer

About Me


Hey there! 

I'm a health and wellness content writer who loves helping my clients make the lives of their audience better. I've been writing in this field for the past three years, and have been involved in the patient side of health care for nearly two decades.

My work has helped my clients get to the first page of Google and has created strong client engagement. I also have a certification to write in the sciences and can help you translate dense medical language to something a layperson can understand.

That being said, I’m not just here to help you get results. I truly care about the work you do for your clients. Being a patient myself, I know how important it is to feel like I can trust the provider I’m going to see. I can help you build that same trust with your clients.

Check out this post I wrote for The Mighty which was favorited by nearly 3,000 people.

I also wrote a guide on stopping panic attacks for one of my clients that got to the first page of Google when searching for “how to stop a panic attack”.

While my specialty is in health and wellness, I have also written for clients in the tech, marketing, and financial industries.
