I am a PhD, AMWA-certified medical writer with many years’ experience teaching and developing biomedical courses at the university level.
I love researching, writing, and teaching biomedical sciences. In my courses, I would use online posts to help further course discussions.
I have served as both Secretary and Treasurer for the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) Florida chapter. For anyone considering medical writing as a career, AMWA is an invaluable resource.
My wife and I are also the proud parents of two amazing (of course!) sons. My family loves traveling, exploring, and hiking…almost any excuse to get out into the beautiful Florida sunshine!
