Freelance Writer

I have over 25 years of experience as a freelance writer. I’ve written thousands of newspaper articles, coauthored consumer books, textbook chapters, journal articles, and have been quoted in numerous magazines and newspapers. My core philosophy is to make healthy living doable.  I recommend balanced and realistic eating patterns for good health because I want to put the JOY back into eating.

  • Consumer Friendly Communications: Clear, evidence-based messaging about your products. I’ve co-authored several diet books designed to be helpful tools that will help your clients maintain a healthy lifestyle.
  • Content Writing: I am able to translate complex data into usable information for your clients. My work is well-researched and comprehensible. I’ve written thousands of articles on food, nutrition, and healthy eating on multiple platforms including The Meadville Tribune, Workitmom, Superkids Nutrition , and for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
  • Science Writer: I have a knack for making science easier to comprehend for consumers and enjoy providing science-based content about nutrition, food, and ingredients. My experience includes writing technical articles for health care audiences, including my extensive writing on sugars and sweeteners, including a textbook chapter in Fructose, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Sucrose and Health and a journal article for the Journal of Lifestyle Medicine. With a strong interest in biotechnology and agriculture, I’m an advisor for GMO Answers.
  • Blogger: I provide well-reasoned dietary advice to the public via my Chew the Facts blog®. I am passionate about helping consumers decipher nutrition fact from myth, so they can enjoy eating for better health. Facts not fear!
