I help health researchers get published, get funded, and get into the habit of writing so that they can advance their careers.


The twice-rejected grant proposal that's been haunting you in your sleep? Yeah, let's deal with that.

Or maybe it's an unfinished research paper (or three) that's keeping you up at night.

Let's face it: as an academic, you're supposed to 'just know' how to write. How hard can it be, right? Uhhh...really freaking hard.

How are you supposed to find the time to write when you have clinical work, teaching, admin responsibilities, and...a family? And when you DO find twenty minutes to sit and write, how do you just dive right in without feeling stuck? Not easy.

Here's the craziest part: unless you were super lucky, no one ever taught you how to write a great journal article or grant proposal. But getting published and getting grant funding is essential for your career. That's NUTS.

You could figure it out on your own, like you're expected to. OR...you could get some help. Need help right now? Scroll down to check out one of my free tools.

Nice words from clients

I found it very helpful to have someone reading the proposal from the angle of “Is this clear? Are the messages consistent?”, etc. I was impressed by your ability to make relevant comments without having training/knowledge in the specific scientific area. From a general grant writing perspective, it also gave me some peace of mind to know that someone was carefully reading.
