Story
Tagline
Freelance Writer: Pharmacy Graduate and Medical Blogger
Introduction
After graduating in Pharmacy in Australia, I moved to Italy and started working as a freelance medical writer. 

I loved writing about health from the very beginning. Every single day I get to learn about new topics and help people understand more about their body and the medications they take. Even better, I can work from the comfort of my home in the mountains above Pistoia in Tuscany, learning how to concoct herbal remedies in my spare time. I can't ask for much more than that!

My dream? I want people to feel in control of their health and understand just why they need to do things or take drugs to help them feel better. That's why I created www.medicinehow.com to explain how it all works and, hopefully, empower the people with knowledge!
