I am a veteran freelance writer and editor with more than 30 years of experience in writing, editing (including substantive editing), and conducting literature reviews. The clients of my full-time freelance business over the last 19 years have included federal government agencies, nonprofit organizations, medical communication agencies, pharmaceutical companies, and medical professional societies.

I specialize in oncology, non-malignant hematology, nutrition, and mental health (including substance abuse and mood disorders). I also have a substantial amount of experience in aging, health economics and outcomes research (HEOR), medical devices, pharmaceuticals, precision medicine, obesity, rare diseases, substance use, and pediatrics.

I have written more than 500 meeting summaries for federal government agencies (including the National Institutes of Health), pharmaceutical companies, and nonprofit organizations. I have also produced numerous white papers and written or revised and edited more than 200 medical journal manuscripts. 

I am particularly skilled at conveying complex medical concepts in plain language to patients and other lay audiences. I also enjoy creating polished final documents written in a single voice from sections written by several authors.

I am detail oriented, and I never miss a deadline. I work well both independently and in teams, including teams that are multidisciplinary and geographically dispersed. I enjoy working closely with authors to create documents that meet their needs. But I recognize that many authors have competing responsibilities, and I have developed techniques to maximize their input while minimizing my demands on their time.
