As an English and Philosophy graduate and Nutritional Medicine graduate, I have an excellent command of language and have experience writing for both online and print publications.
The majority of my portfolio is medical copy writing, with some of my main clients including nutrition supplement companies and retailers, family physicians, surgeons and naturopathic doctors. I have worked as a content manager for a suite of websites providing patient-facing information on back surgery, neck pain, infectious disease, and stem cells, as well as natural health interventions for heart disease and skin problems and I regularly review medical articles for a top-ranking medical information website.
Specialisms include nutrition and health (both conventional medicine and naturopathy), fitness, travel, academic work (including proofreading and editing), literature and the arts.
I live in Vancouver, Canada, but I am originally from the UK and am happy working in British, Canadian and American English.
Education Summary: First Class Honours Degree from York University, UK, in English and Philosophy (BA Hons) (2005).
Higher Diploma in Nutritional Medicine, from the University of West London (2011).

I've been working as a freelance writer since 2010 and have, in that time, written the majority of the copy for websites including PainNeck.com, Back-surgery.com, Stemcelltreatments.org, Lymediseaseguide.org, Naturallyhealthyskin.org, Naturallyhealthyheart.com, and more. I also managed the content for these websites by researching topics to cover in blog posts, writing the posts, optimising them for search engines and uploading, editing and promoting the content through social media activities. I am active on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and via email newsletters to a mailing list of over 4000 subscribers.
I provide corporate copywriting services for businesses in the financial and legal sectors, and I have written and reviewed medical copy sent to physicians to promote a new surgical clinic in the UK and for an online family GP service. In January 2013 I was creative lead and sole copy writer for a start-up company manufacturing vegan dog food, allowing the company to continue using carefully structured blurbs for current marketing purposes.
