Service Description

1. Grant & Proposal Writing

I have developed and been awarded grants for over US$1M from large foundations (Robert Wood Johnson Foundation) and government agencies (NIH). For over 5 years, I have worked on a contract basis for a small health non-profit and have been awarded several smaller grants ($25K) for developing health science capacity in Latin America.

I am experienced in writing proposal and budget narratives, conducting research, and designing quantitative measurement plans. I believe my passion for health and communitiy-building comes through in my writing. I would love to help your non-profit identify funders, develop projects and proposals, and ensure excellent data capture techniques for program evaluation.

2. Editing & Proofreading of grants, proposals, reports, and technical articles

Acted as editor for large-scale grant proposals while working for RTI International. Topics ranged from Health IT to sexual health and health policy.

3. Content Development for websites of non-profits focused on health, science, and/or healthy communities.

4. Informational writing (blogs, articles) related to sexual health, dating, wellness, science, or civil society.
