I offer a variety of professional services as a registered dietitian and health & wellness copywriter. My main focuses are on freelance writing and copyediting, but I am open to other related consulting opportunities.
I integrate my love of writing with my expert experience as a dietitian and science communicator as a copywriter and editor. I enjoy writing about general nutrition and wellness, food justice and food policy, cultural foodways, mental health, and the psychology of food and nutrition.
I am a writer with Reisdorf Writing Services, an evidence-based content marketing strategy company made up of dietitian writers. With this team, I create content such as SEO-optimized evidence-based articles, case studies, course content, marketing materials, as well as email and newsletter campaigns.
I have written for clients including Viome, Else Nutrition, NatureSweet Tomatoes, BRL Sports, Visual Veggies Software, Transparent Labs, Montreal Weights, HeadsUp Health.
