My love of health writing was born in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia. I worked in fundraising, and it was my job to tell donors all about the amazing research happening in the faculty.
Why did I love it? First, because it was meaningful. Health is a vital part of a fulfilling life, and it was thrilling to be involved in that important work. Second, because of the research. I’m a bit of a nerd, and I get a kick out of digging into health science.
Before that, I used my writing skills in a variety of fields including theatre, financial services and adult education. This taught me to write in many different styles for many different audiences.
My Certificate in Professional Writing from the University of Calgary gave me valuable skills in content marketing, copyediting, proofreading and business writing. When you work with me, you get clean copy written in a style that matches your brand voice.
Oh, and I live on beautiful Vancouver Island in Canada, though I work with clients all over North America.
