Our team

At WriterGirl, our mission is to build relationships one word at a time. 

The most important relationship is with you, and building it starts with these words: “How can we help?” Our healthcare content experts will ask you about your project, your brand voice, your goals and more. You can also look forward to a process that’s easier and more enjoyable than you thought possible. That’s thanks to our down-to-earth, easygoing client services managers, writers and strategists.

Meet the members of our core team, who make sure you have the support you need from the very first meeting. You’ll also have access to our 80-plus healthcare writers.

Ready to start building relationships? Let us know how we can help you with your next project today!
