You need a writer to produce accurate health information for a lay audience. Or, you need a writer who can communicate about complex medical issues so well, interdisciplinary health teams will know it was written by a peer.

You need a writer who is a registered nurse.

I am a lifelong Idahoan whose first love was writing stories on my mother’s vintage typewriter.

Through high school and college, I was laser focused on a newspaper reporting and editing. I was diagnosed with breast cancer while on staff as a reporter at Boise’s daily newspaper, the Idaho Statesman — oh, and pregnant. With triplets.

After a 10-year career in journalism and community relations, I pivoted to follow my inspiration to become a registered nurse. I worked 5 years saving lives on a hospital cancer unit, became an oncology certified nurse, and celebrated 12 years of cancer survivorship — and the triplets’ 12th birthday.

The good news for you is that my combined journalism and nursing careers inform a keen ability to produce accurate health information for a lay audience, or that will relate to interdisciplinary healthcare teams as a peer.

I also have written about local-government issues, gun-violence prevention and affordable housing.

As a reporter at the Idaho Press-Tribune, I earned the Utah-Idaho-Spokane Associated Press Association's highest honor, the William H. Cowles III Memorial Award for investigative reporting, for my coverage of hate crimes.
