Studies show more than 80% of doctors believe a patient portal helps with patient satisfaction, and 71% believe it helps with patient/physician communication.

Let Me Fill Your Editorial and Writing Needs!

I am an experienced freelance writer, editor, historian, and educator, and am available to new clients to help fill their editorial and writing needs.  I have published articles on Health IT Outcomes, Business Solutions Magazines, Hospitality Leader Online, Integrated Solutions for Retailers (Soon to be Innovative Retail Technologies), as well as writing for Insight's blog.  While most of my published freelance work focuses on healthcare IT, government, education, and retail IT, and restaurant, hospitality, and retail news, I am flexible and can write in a wide range of subject areas. Trained as a historian, I am familiar with research techniques and can provide a polished and proven final product.
In addition,  I am available to do full manuscript reviews of fiction or non-fiction works. I can provide a comprehensive assessment of the content, provide detailed feedback on completed work, perform grammatical checks and editing, and assess the likelihood that your manuscript could be accepted for publication. I also can help work with you on partial manuscripts to help develop a completed product! Cost of the review is dependent upon length and type of manuscript. Contact me if you are interested in having me do your review!

Patients are increasingly rating their healthcare providers on sites like, and in much the same way as they would a new appliance or vehicle.

Trained as a historian, I am also a lifelong writer of fiction and poetry. I have traveled widely and spend most of my free time devouring books.
I live in Erie, PA with my husband David and our 5 cats and an elderly poodle.  We call our house the menagerie, and I simply love the chaos that so many pets provide.  I am a teacher at heart, and continually find ways to help others through my work, whether inside a classroom or not.  I am currently running a Weekly Writing Group at a local bookstore, working on several of my own projects, and doing freelance writing for Jameson Publishing. 
Bragging rights
I am a true Great Lakes girl, born on Lake Superior, raised on the shores of Lake Michigan, and then migrating to Lake Erie.
