About

I have been a freelance writer for just over a year. Before becoming a freelancer, I worked as an Information Specialist (II) at the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Information Service, where I provided patient education across multiple service lines and communication channels.

  • I hold a master’s degree in behavioral science and a technical writing certification.

  • I have created and collaborated on numerous documents during my 10+ year career in human services and patient education.

Philosophy

As a technical writer, I strive to create accurate and accessible evidence-based health content for patients and their loved ones. I use credible sources, follow style guides that emphasize accessibility and inclusivity, and work collaboratively with experienced editors to make complex health information approachable for those in need.
