ABOUT ME

Insight, smarts, wit, and tight, energetic writing. I’m an independent writer and editor in Silver Spring, MD.

Versatility is me. I love a quirky topic or the challenge of creating fresh copy for more traditional clients. While the bulk of my work surrounds health, I report on trends, culture, psychology, relationships and travel, too.

I’ve written print and web copy for healthcare systems and universities as well as features for national newspapers and magazines like The Washington Post. My credits include newsletters for a psychiatric hospital, music school, and pharma company. Annual reports for hospitals and a shelter for abused women. Speeches and columns for association CEOs. Proposals for a public radio station and art museum. Op-eds on dating, laugh tracks, women’s issues.

Before moving to the Washington, DC, area, I was a writer and editor 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.
