Writer, Editor, Content Strategist


I am a freelance writer, editor, and communications and content strategist based in Brooklyn, New York, with nearly 10 years of experience in healthcare, academia, and journalism. 


In a complex media and marketing environment, a good writer/editor and content strategist helps you succeed at communicating consistently, using the right platform for the right purpose, while sticking to writing fundamentals. I get content strategy because I have written for and worked on just about every platform: organization web sites, press releases, reports, blogs, social media, email, and ad copy. Whether a small group with limited resources or a large company with an ambitious content plan, I can work with you.


I can do the following:

  • Write and edit (features, op-eds, press releases, organization web sites, reports, e-mail, etc.) 
  • Develop a sustainable content strategy
  • Teach writing and communications skills


I am a part time digital writer/editor for NYU Langone's amazing website redesign. Previously, I have worked at NYU Langone Health and Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health and was a reporter covering law and education. I have also worked as a copywriter for a financial website and a life sciences recruitment firm.
