About

In my 10+ years as a freelance journalist I have written for numerous national and regional publications including Parenting, Parents and AARP: The Magazine.  I work as a contributing writer at EverydayHealth.com, the largest health destination on the Web, and have a monthly health column in Taste of the Bay Magazine.  My work has also appeared on websites such as SheKnows.com and NurseTV.com and on The Lohdown on Science, a Caltech radio show aired on more than 100 stations throughout the U.S. and in over 175 countries worldwide.

My copywriting experience includes three years freelancing for Disney/Buena Vista Entertainment, writing articles and developing original content including games, puzzles and other activities for e-newsletters and the Web in conjunction with new DVD releases. In the health arena, I write for Bayer HealthCare’s Speaking Frankly about Hemophilia website, have created text for websites such as www.ChartMyself.com and developed a procedural handbook establishing guidelines for the editorial process of an online sleep research journal.

I have edited a wide range of projects including user manuals, physician clinical guides and treatment protocols for aesthetic and medical laser systems,  NIH grant proposals for the continuation of a Ph.D. training program and annual reports for a professor of sleep research.  I also served as managing editor of a website devoted to the rapid publication of sleep research manuscripts.

Prior to going freelance I worked as a senior editor at the Brain Research Institute at UCLA.
