ABOUT ME

I love to write. Personally, I've been blogging since 2011 and writing fiction stories since I was 13 years old. Professionally I've been writing marketing copy, articles, blogs, technical materials, and video scripts since 2013. I'm also proud to be one of two Lead Writers at Vertigo Gaming Inc., where I've written video game scripts, barks, creative descriptions, newsletter content, and more since 2015.


No matter the medium, topic, style, or objective, I just love to write.

RESEARCH WRITER | HEALTHCARE BUSINESS INSIGHTS

I researched, monitored, and reported on developments in the US healthcare industry with a specific focus on IT and Revenue Cycle topics for a business audience. I interviewed healthcare executives to learn more about complex topics and projects for use in case study articles. Much of this research stemmed from hospital member-driven requests for customized research and analysis.
