I get it. You don’t want to trust your healthcare brand to just anyone.

You know that delivering effective health content requires special skills and knowledge.

You also believe it’s important to connect with the consumer.

And that health content must be 100% accurate, reliable and up-to-date.

As a professional health writer, that’s what I deliver. 


Working with me

I have tertiary-level writing qualifications and have been writing health and medical content for over 10 years. This means I have experience and qualifications most copywriters don’t have.

But as well as being able to deliver world-class health content, I’m very easy to work with.

In fact, I even have many clients who keep coming back to work with me.

I have simple, step-by-step processes which makes each project run smoothly.

I’m also highly professional, will communicate with you during the entire project, and meet all deadlines.


Professional health writer affiliations

If that’s not enough, I’m proud to be an official member of The Clever Copywriting School  the home of successful copywriters – which means I’m continually honing my skills to bring you the best in copywriting. I even won Member of the Year in 2019!

I’m also a member of the Australasian Medical Writers Association, and the Digital Masterchefs, where I stay up-to-date with all things digital marketing.

Protecting client credibility

One of the things I pride myself on is protecting my clients’ credibility. That means only using the best quality sources of information. I talk about this on Episode 111 of The Hot Copy Podcast – Medical Copywriting Unpacked.

Professional health writer
What unique skills do you have, that I can't get with an ordinary copywriter?

As a professional health writer, I have developed very specific skills, which include:

  • sound knowledge of the health and medical industry

  • highly developed research skills
  • knowing where to source my health and medical information from

  • an ability to read scientific studies and interpret the information
  • knowing how to cite references
  • writing complex information so the average person can understand it
  • writing patient-friendly copy

  • knowing how to write copy that complies with AHPRA Advertising Guidelines.
Where do you source your information?

Glad you asked, because there is a lot of incorrect and misleading health information out there! I source my information for health content from scientific studies, key health bodies, and reputable institutions and organisations, including the World Health Organisation.

Do you provide references?

Absolutely! All health content comes with a list of credible references.

Do you write other content besides health and medical?

Not really. I am a specialist health and medical writer, so don’t usually write for other industries. However, I can write many things including articles, websitespatient resources, sales pages, video scripts, press releases and newsletters. 

Can I book you to speak on my podcast or at my event?

Absolutely! Please visit my Speaker’s Page for further information.
