Are you the founder of a growing wellness business?

If you’re a counsellor, therapist, or other solopreneur, you know how easy it is for content creation to get sidelined by other more urgent business tasks. That’s particularly true if you struggle with writing and marketing yourself.

Are you an assigning editor at a print or online publication?

Do you have health and wellness articles to assign and deadlines to meet? Partner with a professional journalist who is also an editor (that’s me!) for well-researched, clean copy right on time – every time. I work with print and digital health titles, general-interest newspapers or magazines, and traditional publishing outlets.

Do you work in the marketing team of a health brand or business? 

Whether your product is wearable health tech or workout gear, high-quality, engaging content can support your brand’s product sales and educate both current and potential customers.
