I am a freelance technical writer and researcher with a degree in pharmacy specializing in health, nutrition and medicine, family and parenting, women's issues, men's issues, entertainment, lifestyle and fitness, local and green topics. I am able to write in a wide range of styles from personal and informal to educational and scientific/technical. I am also skilled at SEO writing with specified keyword density and web content writing in a wide variety of topics along with rewriting targeted articles. I can do fast rewrites and article production when the source is provided and am very skilled at web research which is one of my specialties. I have a wealth of personal knowledge in many areas surrounding the health care market including personal health, nutrition, fitness, family issues and medicine and I have access to a number of scientific and medical resources and references that others may not due to my standing as a health professional. I have over 20 years’ experience as a medical, educational and clinical research professional. In addition to web content article production and reports on medical, health and nutrition topics, I am also skilled at web posting and forum/message board topics and coordination. I have been instrumental in providing secondary research and background health and business information, including SEC filing and financial information for high-level strategic business development with large pharmaceutical and other health care entities. I have designed and produced curriculum for college level allied health courses as well as scientific reports and professional presentations for large medical meetings using power point and corresponding reference and educational material. I also have experience in web-design and excellent editing skills. Having been born and educated in the United States, I am certainly a native English speaker skilled at wordsmithing using correct grammar and appropriate sentence structure.
I have a PhD in biochemistry, and have worked in medical research for over six years. During that time I have focused on both neurodegenerative and infectious diseases, and have produced a number of publications. This means that I have a lot of experience in data collection, analysis, and communication. I use this knowledge in my work as a consultant, assisting investors and venture capitalists. Here I perform 'due diligence' on biotech companies, helping investors to understand the meaning and importance of results provided by scientific papers and clinical studies. This allows investors to make the correct decision as to the value of a potential investment. If you are looking to invest in biotech companies, to communicate science to a wide audience, or are a researcher looking to craft the perfect journal paper, I believe I can be of assistance.
I am a native Spanish speaker scientist with background in Biological Sciences. I have experience in English - Spanish translation, in diverse areas such as Molecular Biology and Zoology. I am also interested in education and foreign language acquisition. I consider myself a detail-oriented and hard-working person. Feel free to contact me to discuss your projects.
