Disease Management

Easy reading is damn hard writing.

Nathaniel hawthorne

Starting my career at a patient education publishing company, I learned the art of writing for a population facing the stress and anxiety of a new diagnosis or procedure. In addition to empathizing with my audience, this included using a simple format with plenty of subheads, bullets and white space, and writing at a 5th to 6th grade reading level (not so simple!).

I’ve written pamphlets, booklets, newsletters, articles and online content on everything from cancer and heart disease to plantar warts and COVID-19. My intention is always to help people better understand, manage and cope with their conditions.
