Leigh Wilkins

Leigh graduated from Northwestern with a journalism degree in her hand and a dream in her heart…of not becoming a journalist. Within a few years she set up shop as a freelance medical writer in Chicago. Four moves, one husband and three kids later, she was back in her hometown of Cincinnati — still busy as a freelancer but looking for a new gig, perchance one that offered the company of fellow humans and a 401(k) match. A client told her to check out WriterGirl, and the rest is history. Leigh specializes in translating scientific lingo for any audience, whether it’s patients, parents, physicians or researchers. There’s nothing Leigh doesn’t like about WriterGirl. And while her amazing coworkers don’t keep her company, exactly, they never fail to inspire.
