While I am currently formalizing my credentials with a Masters of Applied Health Sciences, I have worked for over a decade creating knowledge products including website content, brochures, newsletters and ghost-written materials for international leaders in the natural health industry.

With five years experience as producer and host of a health talk radio program, as well as a season as the health correspondent for a local cable television news station, I am in tune with the kinds of messages that appeal to media. As a speaker, I am adept at presenting information on air and in-person in an audience-friendly and engaging format.
