I earned a copyediting certificate from the University of California, San Diego, after more than 15 years at the bench conducting primary research in neuroscience, pharmacology, drug addiction, and drug discovery.
I have a BS in physiology and a PhD in pharmacology and toxicology. As a freelance medical and science editor for individuals and organizations worldwide, including the JAMA Network journals, I have helped hundreds of professors, physicians, postdoctoral fellows, nurses, and graduate students publish their research in high-impact English-language journals.
