Freelance Writing at GRLife

Posted by

I’ve added a new section to the website – Freelance Writing. For over a year now, I’ve been writing on this blog and it is something I love doing. Reading, researching and writing about health and wellness is my jam. In fact, learning about health and wellness puts me into “flow“. When I’m writing time flies by!

My Writing Experience

Since the beginning of my career, writing has been a part of it. Back in the day, when I was in college, I chose this career because I love writing. I combined my love of art, writing, and storytelling to get a degree in Marketing.

And so, for the past 25 years I focused my career on Marketing, Sales and Customer Experience. The company that I work for now has a popular blog that I started years ago. Recently, they wanted to expand it. We hired additional staff, including other professional writers. It is now a full magazine. My company created an industry read, a bimonthly industry journal. It is read around the country. (I get a kick out of seeing my name in print as a Contributing Writer.)

In addition to writing in my professional life, I have also written for a number of blogs, including one Actors’ Theatre when I was a Board Member there. When I was racing in Obstacle Course races, I contributed to the Spartan Race magazine on my experiences.

Freelance Writing on Health and Wellness

As a reader of my site, you know that my personal interests are in health and wellness. I am fascinated by nutrition and how it affects our day to day health. Nutrition and diet feel as though they should be so simple. And yet, it isn’t. Almost everyone I know struggles with it. That’s something I can’t stop thinking about – I want to figure it all out and help others do the same.

Every day, scientists are making new discoveries! It’s easy to forget that nutrition is a brand new science. Not to mention, not that long ago that we ate whatever we grew or raised. No one thought about its nutritional content. Actually, the term “vitamine” was coined in 1912 by Casimir Funk. (Who had a great name in my opinion.) The discovery of all the different vitamins took years. And, it was far from a smooth road.

So, scientists continue to put the pieces of the health and wellness puzzle together. I am fascinated by the work that they are doing and I enjoy writing about it. This puts me in a place where I want to offer these skills to others.
