SERVICES

Pregnancy Registry consultant; freelance writer; editor; speaker

Women’s health and empowerment issues motivated my career as a women's health nurse practitioner and public health professional. Having worked in drug safety and ethics within the pharmaceutical industry for many years, I published Pregnancy and the Pharmaceutical Industry: The Movement Towards Evidence-Based Pharmacotherapy for Pregnant Women (Elsevier, 2019).

 

As a researcher, I’ve published scientific papers in Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pediatrics, Birth Defects Research and other medical journals and am most widely known for my research into medication safety during pregnancy. I have blogged about women’s health issues for BabyMed, Pregistry, and Ms. Magazine. I’m now working on papers and books about STDs and birth control, sharing my passion for reproductive health care and human rights.

 

I live in the beautiful Bucks County woods of Pennsylvania but sometimes can be found in the low country of South Carolina.
