Areas of Expertise

Blogging

Are you a start-up or an established company or publication? I blogged weekly for AARP on family caregiving for more than two years and have blogged for forbes.com and HuffingtonPost’s over 50 section. I also write corporate blogs for companies that target baby boomers and seniors in the digital health and aging field. I recently wrote 20 posts for Intel-GE’s Care Innovations.

Consumer Writing

I am an award-winning writer (min Award for best single article in a consumer magazine) with more than thirty years of experience. I write for the country’s top magazines, newspapers, and websites, and am the author of two books. I contributed a chapter on boomer and senior housing to the recently released Not Your Mother’s Retirement. I have reporting experience writing a weekly Sunday news section for The Boston Globe for seven years and weekly news and lifestyle pieces for AARP.

Corporate Communications

I specialize in companies that have products and services relating to housing, elder caregiving and older adults. My target audience is often the baby boomer adult children. As a boomer, adult child, and long-distance caregiver to aging parents, I understand this market well.

My strength lies in my ability to take complicated, technical or seemingly dry concepts and turn them into crisp, easily understandable and clever copy. I pride myself on being easy to work with—and fast!
