About Me

I am a writer and editor with nearly ten years of experience working across media platforms, including web, e-mail, social, and print, in public relations and journalism. I can work with clients on writing, editing, content strategy, and other communications consulting. My passion is helping people develop clear and simple writing and speaking skills across platforms. Wondering how to start a Twitter account? How to organize a website? How to develop an editorial plan for your organization? Get in touch at elainermeyer[at]gmail.com.

I've worked in healthcare and public health for the past seven years at NYU Langone Health and Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, particularly working toward a more equal and fair healthcare system and a society that prioritizes health for all. I have worked with many remarkable academics to help them develop their writing and speaking for the media and lay public and strategize about communications. Before that, I have worked as a reporter covering law and education.  Learn more about my professional background on LinkedIn, and discover my writing on this website.

In my free time, I take French, play tennis, write about traveling and keep up a blog called Facts from Dad. In 2013, I co-hosted a public access cable television show called Hot Topics with my friend Keith, on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network. Perhaps the best day of my life was in 2006, during my college graduation ceremony, when I got a shoutout from Barack Obama,with my parents, and members of my extended family there to witness.
