I specialize in transforming scientific and technical material into easy-to-understand and compelling copy that is accessible to any reader.

“Carmen worked with us on a sponsored booklet on early stage kidney cancer. Her dedicated research on the topic and ability to distill the clinical information into easy to understand text let the booklet meet its goal for our readers who are making important treatment decisions.” Julie Denovan, Project Manager, Information, Canadian Cancer Society (National Office)
No matter what the topic or format, I will reflect you and your company’s voice and brand in a clear, engaging and consistent style for both generalist and specialist audiences.
