Freelance Writer | Emergency Medicine | Mental Healthcare

About Me

Hello! I'm a freelance writer who specializes in healthcare-related content. I've worked with editors for some of the largest EMS related magazines, including EMS World Magazine and Firehouse Magazine. I have real life experience providing emergency care, interacting with people struggling addiction and substance abuse, and helping those with mental health struggles. 

Healthcare topics I've covered: 

  1. Emergency care/first aid/Ambulance-related topics
  2. Mental health care (Crisis intervention, co-responder programs)
  3. Substance abuse management (Post overdose response teams, safe sites) 
  4. Care for the homeless (tiered response, alternative destinations) 
  5. Healthcare Education 

In addition to writing about healthcare/EMS topics, I also write about Home Improvement and DIY topics. While I specialize in healthcare and ambulance related topics, I'm a go-getter who's not afraid to tackle new topics. I've written for construction tech companies, neurosurgical sites, and travel magazines. I enjoy collaborating with clients and researching new topics!

I love writing. I believe that written communication is the most powerful form of human expression. I find people are still moved to action by carefully crafted words. I believe businesses, non-profits, and individuals who harness the raw power of written communication can make a nice splash in whichever river upon which they travel. 

Throughout my writing career, here are some of the people I've worked with:  

  1.  Marketing directors at B2B tech companies (EMS software and construction technology) 
  2.  Business owners in need of B2C website content (DIY How-to blog posts, product overviews, question and answers)
  3.  Editors at print and digital magazines 
  4. SaaS companies 
  5. Tech companies 

Here are some of the skills I bring to the table: 

Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me.  I'd love to learn more about you. I'm always interested in finding out what makes my clients' tick. Please, don't hesitate to reach out with any questions. 

Thanks again.
