About Lisa

A rich academic background honed my writing skills and fostered my perspectives on health and medicine. I graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College with a dual major in mathematics and history, then received my PhD in research psychology from McGill University. My math background, including a deep dive into statistics during my PhD training, continues to serve me well in presenting complex data sets in publications.

During five years as a college professor, I taught the course on writing a literature review and developed healthcare-focused course offerings including Health Psychology and Caregiving Relationships.

My work in medical writing began in 2006–2010 in promotional med ed and continuing medical education. From 2010–2017 I worked in publications at Envision Pharma Group and Springer Healthcare. I managed many publication plans on behalf of these agencies, oversaw the development of manuscripts and congress activities, and led strategic publication planning initiatives for multiple clients. I have been freelancing full-time since Spring 2017.

I am a Certified Medical Publication Professional, a past committee chair and active member of the International Society for Medical Publication Professionals, and a member of the American Medical Writers Association.

With a broad background in science and health as well as advanced medical writing skills, I consistently deliver top quality, strategically aligned content for my clients.
