Medical Writer

I help online medical businesses differentiate themselves by writing effective content that engages and connects with their customers. Even the most prosperous medical practices and companies struggle to stand out in the crowded online healthcare industry. You know you provide outstanding medical care, but maybe you're having trouble communicating your brand message clearly on your website. Writing about yourself is hard! As a physician and medical writer who has three decades of experience in the medical, business, and education sectors, I can help you tell your story in a way that attracts more online business. You can see my work at VeryWell Health, Yahoo, Insider, HuffPost, Forbes, Healthline, and WebMD.

Medical & Wellness Writer - Facts vs Fitness

I carry a Master of Science in Personalized Nutrition, and a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology (specialized in the areas of Genetics & Microbiology). My focus is on a scientifically-backed approach to natural health care, however, my combination of education gives me the unique advantage of understanding both holistic and mainstream medical approaches at an advanced level. I have used this knowledge to build two successful companies in the health sciences industry.

I have spent much of my academic and writing career researching the topics of how nutrition and lifestyle factors influence obesity, weight loss and, digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). I am also well versed in numerous other topics involving chronic illness and longevity such as nutritional influences on various cancers, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, pregnancy, exercise performance, mobility into old age, and much more. My scientific research on obesity and microbiota has also been published by the British Association of Nutritional Therapists as the featured article in the April 2016 issue.

Medical & Wellness Writer

Throughout my ten years as a professional writer and editor, I have worked on magazines, blogs, e-Books, news updates, e-mail campaigns, landing pages, website copy, press releases, radio ads, video scripts, and so, so much more. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to write for a broad range of topics—from medical services to pet supplies. Given my professional background, of course, I do have a specialization and preference in writing in the health, fitness, creative writing, and sports niches. I am an author of two fiction books, four non-fiction books, and have fully translated one book. I was a University television reporter and anchor and also contributed to the newspaper and magazines. I have played on both the Brazilian and Portuguese National Teams, in Division I University soccer, and six years professionally.

I now have transitioned the high-work-ethic and determined mental capacity I needed on the field to the workplace. I am American born, lived and studied in the US before I took my professional soccer career to Europe. I speak, read and write in English, Portuguese, Spanish, and German.
