Health and Science Writing

As a self-proclaimed "writer with a nerdy side," I am a freelance health and science writer who specializes in turning the latest health and scientific research into engaging content for consumers.

After graduating with an M.S. in Dietetics, I worked as a Patient Services Manager in the hospital system for several years, later becoming the
Senior Content Developer for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Rhode Island and its subsidiary, the Health and Wellness Institute. Now that I am a freelance writer, I work with health companies to develop consumer programs and marketing materials for their products. I also work with educational companies to create science textbooks and assessments for grades K-12.

Nutrition and Wellness Articles
I regularly write nutrition and health articles for major websites, including The Nest, Livestrong, and SFGate. Samples are available in my online portfolio.

I also content audit articles on major websites for nutritional/medical accuracy.

Educational Writing
Having a lifelong passion for science, I love to create science textbooks and assessment questions for grades K-12. I have written life, earth, space, and physical science content that adheres to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
