...as a consultant...
nearly 15 years I operated as a consulting writer, and for the past 6
it has been a full-time operation. The Quill Consulting, LLC offers a
variety of services based on
my consulting experience with a number of institutions, some of whom
Advanced Concepts Institute
Aesthetic Surgery Journal
Boston University Medical School
Congress of Neurological Surgeons
Foley and Lardner, LLP
Gullapalli and Associates, LLC
Independent Medical Education Companies (several)
Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America
University of the Sciences in Philadelphia
With these institutions, I have composed
and/or edited articles for publication, journal supplements, grants/proposals,
needs assessments, monographs, test questions, guidelines, presentations,
executive summaries, reports, and many others. Forging these relationships with
a variety of people at a variety of companies has been what I've enjoyed most
about being a consultant.
...as a full-timer...
In addition to various freelance
positions, I have held full-time positions as a medical writer/editor/professional at a
number of professional institutions. These include:
Auburn Memorial Hospital
CorbettAccel Healthcare Group
Emergency Care Research Institute
Kenmore Mercy Hospital
to my freelance work, these companies have helped me gain a strong
foundation of science and writing skills encompassing everything from
medical devices to marketing to pharmaceuticals to experience in the
clinical and patient care setting. Having been a full-time employee for
more than a decade, I gained an invaluable understanding of the
needs of profit and non-profit businesses, and can aim my efforts at
providing exceptional value for both new and established firms alike.
...as a student...
of the most satisfying experience I have attained has been in academic
settings. I enjoy school and I love learning. A Masters degree in
Biological Sciences (ALM) from Harvard University complements my work
experience experience in medical communications and education, while a
Masters degree in English from Northwestern
University has offered me strong writing, editing, and grammatical
skills that I apply to every project that crosses my desk.
