About me

Freelance Writing, Editing and ProofreadingI’ve lived and breathed health writing for the past 20 years. Working for leading B2B publications, large corporations, small businesses, trade associations, individuals and academics around the world has taught me how to write with the sharpness of a journalist, the shrewdness of a business professional and the sensitivity of a living, feeling human being.

My portfolio covers topics ranging from cancer, disability, mental health, chronic conditions (e.g., diabetes & heart disease), rare diseases, autoimmune conditions and women’s health, to healthcare policy and regulatory affairs. I’ve been published in diverse media outlets including Scrip Regulatory Affairs, Clinica Medtech Intelligence, MedTech Views, This Is MedTech, MedTech Engine, MedNous and SecuringPharma.

Having lived and worked in various countries and business environments, I write and edit with a global audience in mind – avoiding jargon and potential cultural blunders. I’m completely at home with the nuances of both American & British English.

I have extensive experience editing content for people whose first language is not English, and am particularly aware of the challenges they can face when writing business communications or submitting articles to English-language publications.

I use a flexible and friendly approach, and provide my clients with the utmost in professionalism, quality of service and dedication.


Karen recently worked on a project with us that required a strong ability to take a
highly technical text and turn it into an easy-to-read, customer-friendly
document. Not only did she do this with ease, she always made the tight
deadlines we gave her and provided detailed feedback and comments for each
draft. We will most certainly call on her again for future projects, and I
highly recommend her to anyone looking for a skilled technical writer.
