Looking to boost your healthcare brand awareness? Want targeted copy that gets your company noticed by the right people and supports your business goals? By speaking the language of your audience, I can help you connect with your clients, prospects, partners, patients, and employees.
My experience includes hospital-based healthcare, research, risk management, and technology. While working for a small lab at Cornell University Medical College, I was around a lot of pipettes, assays, and journal articles. As a Healthcare Analyst for Bellevue Hospital Center, I saw the problems of a large urban hospital up close, and got to advocate for patients who qualified for clinical trials at monthly meetings of NYU Medical Center’s Institutional Review Board.
I also developed, wrote, and edited print and electronic material for clients, prospects and colleagues of a small bankruptcy law firm and the risk management department of a large commercial insurance brokerage.
My specialty is writing material that achieves human-centered connection. In the words of one of my clients:
“Virginia researched and designed a unique tour of the Haight Ashbury area…She displayed particular skill in conveying info to visitors with varying levels of English comprehension. Hostellers who have taken Virginia’s tour have always given positive feedback. Nearly all have claimed that the walking tour significantly improved the quality of their experience at the hostel.” -- Mary Newsom, Former Volunteer Coordinator, Hostelling International, San Francisco
Some of my favorite projects include:
• Authoring a speech on Bellevue Hospital’s Clinical Research Center that secured another year of funding from the National Institutes of Health. • Rewriting a recruitment booklet for college majors in Risk Management. The revised copy included a “Put Your Insurance Degree to Work” section that helped recruiting efforts at the branch and national levels. • Researching and writing a slide presentation that helped orient new employees to safety procedures at a tech company. • Developing and writing a technical newsletter that summarized info on insurer products and services. This monthly publication helped make the jobs of 80 account executives easier.
By the way, I am also a trained Salesforce Admin as well as a Certified ToastMaster.
