Freelance writer specializing in evidence-based health content.
Hospitals, research institutions, universities, and health non-profits: need to explain the work your organization does and why it matters in terms non-scientists can understand? For 20+ years, I’ve interviewed researchers, clinicians, and patients, turning what I learn from them into stories readers can relate to.
Using those same skills, I can craft useful, engaging, evidence-backed articles and content for your magazine, online publication, or brand — whether your target audience is potential donors, patients, health professionals, alumni, parents, or another group altogether.
Other reasons to hire me? I know how to find expert sources, and sift through and assimilate large amounts of information.
But don’t take my word for it.
✰ I’m always amazed that you can process as much information as you do and lay it out so clearly. — Murray Lewis, Editor-in-Chief, Good Times magazine
With years of accumulated knowledge on a wide range of health topics, I can ask better, more informed questions of expert interviewees. And while I specialize in health, I’ve also written extensively about mental health, parenting, lifestyle, retirement destinations, and food.
✰ Very well-done! In my experience, very few (writers) can convincingly handle this topic in an engaging, interesting, unbiased, and accurate manner and translate effectively to a ‘lay’ readership. — Dr. Murray Huff, Professor Emeritus of Medicine & Biochemistry, Western University
Plus, I’ve been told I’m easy to work with.
✰ Your stories are always a treat to read — and edit! — Anna Cristofaro, former senior editor, Good Times magazine
✰ You’re a fantastic writer; accommodating, and utterly reliable. — Ellen Rosenberg, former managing editor, Glow magazine
When I’m not toiling away on copy for my clients (under the supervision of my office manager, Newt, a miniature dachshund), you can probably find me in the kitchen, or digging through piles of plant-based recipes. I love to talk, think, and write about food, and chopping onions is as close as I get to meditating.

I just read Wendy Haaf’s excellent article “Women and Heart Disease”. In November 2019, I had routine heart-disease tests and was told my heart was just fine. Three months later, chest pains when I was lying down sent me to the hospital. I was diagnosed with bronchitis, though I had no cough or cold. I was back in ER six times from March until September. I was tested over and over and told that I had not had a heart attack. My symptoms worsened, and I ended up undergoing open-heart surgery… Women need to be more assertive when it comes to their hearts, no matter what their age.
