Since then, I have mainly worked freelance, writing magazine articles, and blog posts but I have experience in a variety of other writing styles. I am also an adjunct college instructor of composition and literature courses in New York City.
My passion lies in researching and writing health and medical-related content. Because medicine and health are so pertinent to everyone, I believe that communication in regards to those topics is of the utmost importance. With each piece that I write, I strive to bring clarity and new, interesting knowledge to my audience, whether they have a medical degree or have only been to the doctor’s once. I worked as an intern in a hospital marketing department where I created written content for brochures, fliers, newspapers and magazines to promote new clinics and events at the hospital. I also worked with the hospital's non-profit foundation to create content for the annual report that was mailed to donors.
I am a regular guest reviewer for a medical humanities book review blog. This entails reading an assigned book and writing the subsequent review for the blog on a deadline.
In the past, I have worked in campus writing centers as a consultant to help professors, graduate students and undergrads with their written work. I often worked with them on strategies to improve resumes and CVs, as well as academic writing. In this setting, I worked with ESL students frequently to help them copy edit their work and learn grammar rules.
Though my personal interests have pushed me toward the topic of medicine, writing about the medical field has taught me how to write clearly and expediently about any topic that is new to me. I am an avid and efficient researcher with a hunger for knowledge and a passion for passing that knowledge along to my audience.
