Writing & Editing

Whilst I have spent much of my career utilising my skills as a natural health practitioner, in more recent years I have become equally committed to the creative art of writing. What began as a platform to share my knowledge with others via my blog has since progressed into both professional and consumer education.

Now, with several years’ experience as an Editorial Supervisor in complementary medicine, in addition to freelance work, I have worked on a broad range of projects with varying tones and requirements.

Areas I can contribute include copywriting and content creation, content (substantive) editing, copyediting and proofreading — particularly on the topics of health and wellbeing.

Please visit the contacts page to connect with me regarding your writing and editing project needs.

Writing Portfolio

With a broad knowledge of the health and wellbeing industry and a passion for accurate and informative written communication, I can help you with content creation. Whilst my personal writing style is conversational and great for blogging, I also have experience with more formal tones.

Here are a few of my recent published written articles for reference:

Sassy Mama HK – How to boost your immunity during the Hong Kong winter season

Editing Experience

My several years of editing experience has given me a proven track record for detail, and the opportunity to fine-tune a wide variety of items ranging from social media posts, blogs, seminar invites, educational seminars, web copy, technical and scientific/medical documents, and much more.

Editing services include content (substantive) editing, copyediting and proofreading.
