What Clients Say...

I’ve worked with Joanne for almost 10 years. She is a gifted writer and editor – a technical powerhouse who can also find just the right words to make complex, intimidating medical concepts accessible and engaging. 

And Joanne is a true professional – never misses a deadline, is a pleasure to work with, and is eager to contribute to the team in any way she can.

Craig Reynolds

Website Content Manager

Joanne is a thorough researcher and talented writer. I've always been impressed with her ability to structure articles containing complicated medical information and present the information in a way that flows nicely and makes sense. Some of the articles she writes are for healthcare providers and others are for healthcare consumers. She adapts the language level of the articles she writes to suit her audience.
