Former nurse turned freelance writer for hire

About Me

I'm a former nurse with over 20 years of experience in a variety of healthcare backgrounds. I have a Masters degree and I have both frontline and administrative healthcare experience. I'm currently a freelance writer looking for opportunities to write health-related content. I have many years of research and writing experience and can easily manage projects. I create content that is intelligent and well-researched but also written in very accessible language. I'm a regular writer on Medium where I own and operate both health and mental health publications. I'm also a regular content writer for Crowd Content where I write mainly health-related copy. I'm very familiar with online writing, SEO, and creating engaging and unique copy that online readers like.

When I'm not writing, I love to work on my photography projects and making jewelry. I also travel regularly and work on my laptop. My partner and I love hiking, sitting in cafe's, exploring old ruins, learning about history and walking our dog.
