About Lisa

A rich academic background honed my writing skills and fostered my perspectives on health and medicine. I graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College with a dual major in mathematics and history, then received my PhD in research psychology from McGill University. My math background, including a deep dive into statistics during my PhD training, continues to serve me well in presenting complex data sets in publications.

During five years as a college professor, I taught the course on writing a literature review and developed healthcare-focused course offerings including Health Psychology and Caregiving Relationships.

My work in medical writing began in 2006–2010 in promotional med ed and continuing medical education. From 2010–2017 I worked in publications at Envision Pharma Group and Springer Healthcare. I managed many publication plans on behalf of these agencies, oversaw the development of manuscripts and congress activities, and led strategic publication planning initiatives for multiple clients. I have been consulting full-time since 2017.

I am a Certified Medical Publication Professional (CMPP) and an active member of the International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP), International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR), and the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA). I peer review submissions to a top orthopedics journal, Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research and was recognized as a Top Reviewer in 2021 and 2023.

When I'm not at my desk, my husband and I enjoy skiing, cycling, hiking, camping, and visiting our adult kids all over the country. 

With a broad background in science and health as well as advanced medical writing skills, I consistently deliver top quality, strategically aligned content for my clients.
