Looking for a freelance writer for a single gig or maybe a long-term staff writer? I love to write! I currently staff write and ghost write for several clients. I can write about a wide range of subjects, but I specialize in travel, personal finance, health & fitness, and science.

I have a strong background in academic research (after all, I did spend over 6 years in the biomedical field) so I understand the importance of a well researched article with appropriate supporting evidence. I work with my clients to understand their style and needs and will produce a product they are happy to showcase on their websites or print publications. If you are interested in discussing a potential partnership or would like to find out my rates, please contact me below using the “Contact Form.”

Services Offered:
  • Freelance Writing
  • Ghost Writing
  • Copy Writing and/or Editing
  • Staff Writing
  • Project Management
  • Social Media Management
  • Virtual Assistance
