I am a freelance writer with extensive experience in writing, public/media relations and marketing communications, specifically in health care. I have worked in the PR and marketing departments for several health care organizations, including MCGHealth (now GHS Medical Center) and Walton Rehabilitation Health System. During my time at MCGHealth, I handled local, regional and national media relations coverage for the adult and children’s hospitals, including the hourlong, nationwide PBS program, Remaking American Medicine, featuring MCGHealth’s patient- and family-centered care philosophy; ABC News’ radio program; CNN; and a variety of lifestyle publications.
In addition, I have experience writing feature articles, profiles of interesting people and programs, how-to and tips articles and more for regional and national publications. Most recently, I worked in the fundraising office at Georgia Health Sciences University.
