About me

Hello! Welcome to my page.
I'm a highly experienced and versatile writer/editor/content producer working in print journalism and digital writing, editing and content strategy. I am obsessed with words and telling engaging stories while leaving the reader better informed, whether it's for editorial or native content.

Over my career, I have written about everything ranging from travel and banking to pet nutrition. But my specialist 'beat' is health, wellness and beauty - with a skincare, dermatological and aesthetic treatment specialisation. My particular passion is about educating people on healthy mind and body ageing.
I am based in South Africa, and I write in both US and UK English for my clients, who are based in USA, Ireland, France, Germany and Singapore, as well as South Africa.

RESUMÉ HIGHLIGHTS
PRINT
I have been wellness and beauty editor on numerous magazines including Psychologies, Men's Health, Shape, Real Simple, as well as being associate editor on numerous custom publishing titles. I've also contributed regularly to Women's Health, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Emirates Woman, among others.
My work is sought-after because of my wide knowledge of the subject matter, my research skills as well as my ability to translate often challenging subject matter into engaging and informative content.
My work is well-researched, accurate, engaging to read and my copy is clean - requiring very little editing.
DIGITAL
I have completed accredited courses in UX, Digital Marketing and SEO with distinction.
I have created numerous content and e-commerce websites. I am well-versed in SEO writing. I write for meaning and ensure that the relevant keywords and SEO devices are covered without employing keyword stuffing.

Clients include Health24.com, oncology group Cape Breast Care, pharmaceutical skincare companies (Cosmetiques de France and PharmaFrance), Love from Yours (Singapore), Nation of Strong (Germany), healthcare app Redicare.ie.
I've had extensive feedback from clients about the value my content brings to their brand, including the fact that my content is top-ranking in search.

as well as global brands: Environ, Bioderma, Institute Esthederm, Revlon, Estée Lauder, Nuxe, Erborian, L'Oréal, among others.
