By the time I started kindergarten, I knew I'd be a writer.
But after college, afraid I was too outgoing for an often isolated occupation, I got a Master's in Counseling Psychology. In a decade as a career counselor, I saw clients, presented seminars, and wrote three books and dozens of business articles.
Shifting into full-time writing, I covered workplace stress, environmental problems, and entrepreneurship. Early in 1998, a medical center in my hometown asked me to research and write a lengthy in-house newsletter. Over the months I interviewed 20 of their surgeons, I discovered I'd found the ideal vocation.
For health and health care media, I explore (and explain) areas which
fascinate me -- from complementary medicine to rare diseases to new treatments
for cancer. I write print and on-line consumer health pieces; features
for physicians, nurses, and other health care providers; and management
articles for trade publications in pharmacy, long term care, medicine,
and some science areas.
Enthusiastic, curious, and reverent about deadlines, I'm happily writing articles, newsletters, web site copy - even an occasional speech or ghostwriting assignment. Please explore my site to see samples of my work.
I look forward to talking with you about how I can contribute!
