WRITING FOR HEALTHIER, HAPPIER READERS
DRIVEN BY A PURPOSE
My purpose as a freelance health and fitness writer is to educate readers about those topics with evidence, empathy, and nuance.
Did you know? Nursing is the #1 most trusted profession.
And it’s been that way for over 20 years. When a nurse talks, people listen. When a nurse writes, people read. Having “BSN, RN” in your bylines doesn’t just look legit — it boosts your brand’s credibility.
HOW I BECAME A HEALTH AND WELLNESS WRITER
It started with BS
… a Bachelor of Science in Health and Exercise Science. I worked as a personal trainer, helping people take back their power and relearn to love themselves. Soon, I was inspired to trade in my sneakers for scrubs, get my Nursing degree, and start working bedside. I didn’t know it then, but I was trading burpees for burnout.
I became a nurse…
to leave the healthcare industry better than I found it. Determined to make a difference in patients’ lives — a super unique ‘why I became a nurse’ story, I know — I worked myself so hard. Too hard. In a system that causes harm to patients and healthcare workers alike, there was no winning. I walked away.
I was still relentless in my vision for a healthcare system that heals and empowers patients from the inside out. So I approached my work in a new way.
As a nurse writer…
I work towards the same mission I’ve always had. But now, it’s at scale. Being a nurse writer and health journalist gives me the platform to connect with and educate thousands of people. It also allows me to finally practice what I preach — prioritizing your well-being. Writing allows me to take care of myself while taking care of others.
