I’m Julie, health and lifestyle writer for hire, and I live and write outside Allentown, Pennsylvania (an hour north of Philadelphia). While these days find me fleshing out various health and lifestyle articles on the daily, my science-based beginnings almost led me down a very different path. Yet after three years of undergraduate study toward a biology degree, I put down my lab coat and picked up a pen (and a passion for writing).
One professional writing degree and several years of editorial publishing experience later, I turned my full attention toward a freelance career. Now I pair that knowledge and affinity for science with a wordsmith skill set to help people (be they physicians, patients, or the greater public) sort through the latest lifestyle trends and health headlines through various types of content.
But let’s be real, life isn’t all about work. To sum myself up, I’ll just say this: I smile, whenever possible, and I like to think the best of people. And when I’m not cooped up in my writer’s cubbyhole, I’m likely on the chase (after a toddler, a cat, or maybe even a dream).
