I’m a writer. And yeah, I know…you’ve heard and seen that declaration before. Self-admittedly, there’s a lot of us. But here’s my little secret: I’m good at talking; I’m good at writing; and I’m good at making words feel real—like someone actually spoke them (a very underutilized concept).
I double-majored in Communication and English as well as double-minored in Journalism and Media Studies. Almost immediately after graduation, the economy crashed and journalism seemed to die. So I did a little bit of everything in the communication-sphere—making sure that every opportunity had one unifying component: writing. Whether it was developing brochures, interviewing bands (and writing articles), developing blogs, crafting social media content or websites—writing has and will continue to be: my livelihood.
I’ve spent the last five years in pharmaceutical advertising; the last three exclusively as a pharmaceutical copywriter. I’ve spent my time evenly across audiences--producing high-science collateral for health care professionals and developing messaging for patient-facing pieces. I’ve worked both on print and digital pieces in Oncology as well as vaccines for AstraZeneca and Sanofi Pasteur, respectively.
Okay, you’ve made it. You just have to last through one more paragraph of copy that humanizes me before things are all tied-up. When I’m not writing pharmaceutical copy, I dig other creative avenues like blog writing, reading, pryex collecting, and I'm a plant mom. Occasionally, I'll go to an emo/screamo show, but now I’m usually sitting to preserve my precious, aging body.
Most importantly: I'm always up to collaborating on new projects, so please do not hesitate to reach out.
