Service Description

I specialize research and writing on social science and public health topics. I have experience writing for academic, clinical, and lay audiences. My past research, writing, and blogging experiences have spanned several topics within the family sciences such as individual, child, and family psycho-social development and couple relationship health. My experiences have also spanned several health-specific topics such as mental health disorders, chronic disease, patient-provider interactions, health self-efficacy, health behaviors, health outcomes, local and national-level health interventions, and self-help/wellness approaches.

I offer high quality consultation services including:

* Academic Research (e.g., literature reviews, quantitative, qualitative, evaluation)

* Academic Writing (e.g., literature reviews, research proposals)

* Lay Audience Writing (e.g., blog, short articles, brochures, fact sheets, pamphlets)

* Interview Support (e.g., conducting interviews for new staff, screening for knowledge of social science topics depending on your needs)

* Specialized Reports (e.g., best practices papers, evidence analyses)

* Test Development (e.g., knowledge assessments, evaluation tools)

To get started, please contact me via email. I will provide a response as promptly as possible!
