A little bit about me…

I graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with my Bachelor of Science degree. I went on to earn my Doctor of Optometry degree, and have been practicing optometry for several years. 

Though my education and expertise is in the medical field, I’ve had a lifelong interest in writing. I’ve been writing since a very young age. From writing fictional stories about animals as a child, to running an email newsletter in middle school, to becoming a copywriter and advertising manager on my award-winning high school yearbook staff- I’ve never stopped writing. 

I decided to combine my love of writing with my knowledge of health and science. And that’s how my freelance writing business was born! 

If you want to check out some of my published work, head over to my portfolio. Currently, I’m also a member of the American Medical Writers Association.

Hope to hear from you soon!

PS- If you read this far, maybe you’re interested in some fun facts about me.

  • I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I also lived in New York, Boston, and Miami. But Los Angeles is and always will be my home. Someone once told me, living near a beach just puts people in a better mood, even if you don’t go to the beach. I would agree.
  • I love animals, and adpoted two kitties as part of my family. I’m hoping to add a puppy in the future (once I have enough space for everyone)!
  • I frequently visit Disneyland, and enjoy just about everything Disney or Star Wars! Growing up in Southern California, going to Disneyland was a yearly treat. I can honestly say, the nostalgia never gets old!
