Healthcare Geek.

About Sarah

I create behavior-changing content about health. I make executives sound as brilliant as they would themselves if they had more time.

I explain complexities effectively. I know a lot and learn fast. With 20 years of experience in corporate, agency and startup environments in pharma, biotech, health tech, and fitness, I understand all seats at the table.

I’ve managed worldwide communications; directed multimillion-dollar campaigns; developed award-winning content; created successful events for hundreds; and taught everyone from the C-suite to undergrads to communicate effectively.

I’m a science communicator. I’m an industry journalist. I’m an executive ghostwriter. I’m an old-school blogger. I was called a social-media “guru” before it was called “social media.” Basically? I write.

Before I answer any questions, thank you. For reading. So much. I can’t help writing – but people reading it never stops being a thrill.
