I am an independent researcher and freelance science writer. Topics that I find particularly compelling include the gut microbiome, women’s health, aging, longevity, and chronic diseases. As a writer, I focus on creating compelling narratives and providing value to my readers. As an editor, my responsibilities include fact-checking, formatting, removing extraneous information, ensuring proper transitions between sections, checking for proper grammar and spelling, and helping to craft an arc for the story.
I have worked in both academic and clinical research settings. At the University of Georgia, I studied biochemistry and worked in a cancer laboratory as a research assistant. I am presently serving on the community advisory board for the ACTIV-4c Post-Hospital Thrombosis Prevention Study, a clinical trial conducted by researchers and medical doctors at Duke University as part of Operation Warp Speed.
