As an independent writer and editor, I bring insight, smarts, wit, and tight, energetic copy to my work. I love a quirky topic or the challenge of creating a fresh take on traditional subjects. Best, I will meet your deadline.

I was a managing editor for print and digital media for many years but I thrive on the versatility of freelancing. I’ve tackled health care, trends, culture, psychology, relationships, business, and travel.

You may have seen my byline in The Washington Post health and science section or U.S. News & World Report. I also ghostwrite speeches for CEOs, report on industry trends, and produce advocacy pieces for associations. My clients have included a psychiatric hospital, art museum, music school, shelter for abused women, pharmaceutical company, and an NPR station.

Before settling in the Washington, DC, area, I lived and worked for 30 years in and around Philadelphia. Film and far-flung travel are fave pastimes. Once I entered a look-alike contest with my dog and won.
