After earning my Bachelor of Science degree in biology/chemistry from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (aka Va. Tech), I went on to complete clinical rotations in laboratory medicine at Roanoke Memorial Hospital. I spent the next 21 years working in healthcare as a clinical microbiologist.
In 2015, I combined my fascination with medicine and passion for writing into a freelance career, and I haven't looked back.
Even though my expertise is in microbiology and infectious diseases, I'm adept at writing about any medical topic. I take complex medical information and break it down into easy-to-understand content for consumers, and I provide accurate and detailed information for professionals concerning advances in their specialties.
I'm expanding my services to include consultation for fiction and non-fiction authors who need advice regarding ways to include medical information that will strengthen and add intrigue to their manuscripts.
Being a freelance writer allows me to pursue a career where I can work at home with my two feline assistants, Luke and Grace. I'm a firm supporter of animal rights and volunteer for a local rescue during my free time.
