Multifaceted Freelance Writer Specializing in Health and Technology

About Me

I am an experienced freelance writer and editor with over 10 years of experience, primarily in the healthcare and technology industries. I have written for Healthline, GE Healthcare POCUS, Dignity Health, Massachusetts General Hospital and Barton Associates, among others.

I specialize in making complex topics understandable, whether it's breaking down the latest advancements in medical devices or exploring the implications of a healthcare data breach. I can switch between writing for a layperson and a CIO, and my style ranges from conversational to academic to technical.
