Although I have spent the past 3 ½ years specializing in psychiatry and mental health issues for Medscape Medical News, I have also written about the fields of neurology, oncology, cardiology, allergies, dermatology, pharmacology and breaking drug news, pediatrics, and women's health.

Here are just some of my many clips:

In addition to the publications shown above, I have written for The Oncology Nurse, Journal of Multidisciplinary Cancer Care, the Dothen Healthcare Group and Doctor's Guide.

I've also travelled to and covered more than 25 conferences for organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association, the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology, the American Heart Association, and the National Kidney Foundation.

Assignments at these annual meetings have included fast-turnaround articles on original research and breaking news, live tweeting and other social media postings, writing and/or producing video highlights, and writing post-event slide show presentations.
